The center stage was 50 feet above a shop in his hometown of Bryan, Norway.

But a thief – suspected of being a disgruntled fan – used a crane to seize her at night.

Businessman Tore Seifertsen spent £10,000 to commission the £85.5m City signature tribute statue. Even he admitted it was ugly.

It was hoisted into place two weeks ago and Mr Sivertsen planned to auction it off to help fund a hospital in Tanzania until it suddenly disappeared early Wednesday.

Haaland, 22, arrived at City in the summer after scoring 86 goals in 89 games for Borussia Dortmund.

He has scored a goal in each of his three Premier League matches this season.

Head of Tractor Sales Mr Seifertsen told The Sun: “We are all very proud of Erling.

“I thought it would be a good idea to commission a statue to pay tribute.

“Some have complained that he is so ugly, let’s face it, Erling is not a pretty guy. But I’m still shocked that someone decided to steal it.”

Mr Sivertsen commissioned famous wood carver Kjetil Barane, who took a year to make from a 100-year-old stump.

The businessman said: “I accept that it may not be to everyone’s taste, but I love it.

“It is a work of art and not a realistic representation of Erling Haaland.”
