A victim of torture harshly about Haaland and Odegaard: “They are ambassadors of the regime”

In an interview with the Norwegian website, VG Hedges accused Erling Haaland and Martin Odegaard of collaborating with the regime he had fallen victim to. – Both Haalandwhat Odegaard they are ambassadors of a totalitarian regime, he said. The Englishman criticized not only the representatives of Norway, but all players who represent clubs associated with the Middle East.

Odegaard’s Arsenal is sponsored by Dubai-based Emirates, while Erling Haaland’s Manchester City is owned by Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Mansour. – Part of the responsibility of being a public figure is gaining knowledge on specific topics. Especially when you, as a person, appear as an effective showcase for the state. As far as the UAE is concerned, there is no need to make efforts to find out about the widespread human rights abuses by the authorities, said Hedges, commenting on Haaland’s statement that he had not heard of human rights abuses in the UAE.

The Englishman does not like the fact that his country’s clubs and their players cooperate with the Middle Eastern regimes. – It is not just that what is happening in these countries they do not care at all. They are active contributors to the regime they support. When players win trophies, it is with the regime’s help, he said. – Many admire these players. However, they must understand the consequences of their choice. They can’t play for these teams anymore. These are not countries with values ‚Äč‚Äčthat we want to identify with – he assessed.

Erling Haaland joined the Manchester City this summer. So far he has played 10 matches in all competitions and scored 14 goals. He is the leader of the Premier League scorer classification. Martin Odegaard, on the other hand, is the captain of Arsenal. This season he has played seven matches and scored three goals in them.
