Erling Haaland He is considered by the vast majority to be the most promising center forward in the world. His work in Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund they made him wanted by all and finally chose Manchester City. Now he told how that decision was made.
In a chat with Alan Shearer for ‘The Athletic’, the former player asked the Norwegian about different issues. The main one was the gestation of his signing and Erling Haaland commented that his father had to do with it. Although Alf-Inge Halaand, father of the striker, wanted his son to decide for himself, He did not stop talking to him about how good it would be to choose Manchester City.
“He just wanted to expose things to me in the best possible way, since in the end, it’s about me, my feelings and how I see myself at this club. It was the only thing that got me going,” Erling said of the talks with his father.
Alf-Inge Haaland He played for Manchester from 2000 to 2003. There he got to know the insider of the ‘cityzen’ club in depth and that helped his son try to carry on his legacy.
The 22-year-old attacker made his debut against Liverpool last weekend. It was against Liverpool in the final of the Community Shield, where he missed a goal that was quite easy for him to do. He spoke about that and showed his humility by confessing that he is clear that he still has a lot to improve.
“I miss chances with my left foot all the time. It happened to me last week. In terms of finishing, I have to improve my left foot, right foot, headers… there are so many things to improve”, he commented.
The striker for the ‘sky blue’ team is a goal-scoring machine. He scored 115 goals for Salzburg and Dortmund and with the Norwegian team he already has 20. His good numbers do not blind him and he knows that he can still be better.
