Erling Haaland left KSI seething after sending the Arsenal-loving YouTuber-turned-boxer a savage message on social media following the Gunners' defeat to Brighton.
The result all but extinguished Arsenal's hopes of ending their 19-year Premier League title drought, with Haaland's Manchester City side now four points clear at the top with a game in hand heading into the final couple of weeks of the season.
In an interview with MMA Hour, KSI said the Norwegian goal machine got in touch with him to rub salt in the words by sending him an antagonistic GIF, which he said he took in good spirits despite being "very angry" about Arsenal's collapse.

"You know it's so funny, it's so funny. Literally today, Haaland messaged me, and he just sent me a GIF," the 29-year-old said.
"Well, I’m KSI man. But yeah, I sent him a video, I’m not gonna say what the video was, but it’s very funny now how well he’s doing and how well Man City are doing. It’s very funny and I’m very angry."
Haaland scored City's second in a 3-0 win over Everton, his 52nd goal of the season, shortly before Arsenal's defeat to Brighton, with Pep Guardiola's side now on the cusp of winning a fifth Premier League title in six seasons.
Who would win in a fight between KSI and Haaland? Let us know in the comments section below.
Arsenal aren't mathematically out of the title race yet, but KSI says he's certain the dream is over.
"No honestly like the season's done, Man City have won. It is what it is," he said. "I'm still super proud of Arsenal in general, the goal was Champions League, and somehow we've managed to be in the title race for a little bit."
No doubt fans would be up for seeing KSI and Haaland step toe-to-toe between the ropes at some point after their recent exchange, and although KSI might fancy himself with his years of boxing experience, judging by the scratch-marks on Haaland's body after the Everton game, out-scrapping the ex-Dortmund man would be no easy feat.

KSI maintained his undefeated streak following his knockout victory over Joe Fournier at the Wembley Arena on Saturday. The London-born fighter has four wins from four exhibition bouts, and also has a professional victory under his belt after beating Logan Paul via split decision in 2019.
His win over Fournier is however currently under review after footage showed KSI using an illegal elbow for the knockout strike.
