HOW I became...Erling Haaland

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is a terrifying presence to any opposition, standing at 6'4" (193 cm) tall. The 19-year-old Norwegian inherited the dogged work ethic of his footballing father (Alf-Inge) and it was not long before the 'manchild' burst on to the stage. After a brief period at Bryne FK, where he was able to force himself into the first team at just 15, Haaland moved to Molde, where he worked under coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, before finishing the 2018 season as their top goal scorer. This was followed by a big move to FC Red Bull Salzburg. He felt at ease on the bigger stage, becoming only the second teenager in UEFA Champions League history to score in each of his first three appearances in the competition. It was not long before Dortmund signed Haaland in January 2020. He has quickly established himself in the Bundesliga as one of the deadliest strikers in Europe. We went to Norway to learn more about his roots...
Let us show you how he became Erling Haaland, the next football superstar.
Can he continue this incredible form in the seasons to come and cement his place as one of the best in the world? Tell us what you think below...

  • Best thing he did was put the muscle/weight on, seen so many talented players who where great players when they where young but as soon as they stepped up to playing open ages they struggled as they didnt have the strength/build to knock of older kids, Also Ronaldo when he first went to Man U was skinny but soon put the muscle on and went up another level.

  • Very overrated player who can only score simple easy goals, his skills won't translate well at all in the Premier like Timo Werner found out, he do not have special finishing ability and is lucky to be playing in the Bundesliga where the only other club that can defend somewhat is Bayern Munich, I know this is a harsh assessment but mark my words, Haaland will foorever remain in the Bundesliga if he is smart and seen what happened to Timo Werner, in the Premier league you need special finishing abilities to score many gooals especially ability to score from anywhere inside or outside the box, Haaland have none of that just like Timo Werner and we found out the hard way.

    • ​@espacemarmotte Yes bro! I'm kinda agree with you but i really think it's possible and it's not just opinion, the journalists here in Catalonia think the same. Laporta's priority is Haaland, we could afford him if we sell Griezmann and Coutinho. His price in the summer will be 75M + 25M of commissions, 100M in total. It is also worth mentioning that Mino Raiola, Haaland's agent, has a good relationship with Laporta. Having said that, at Barcelona we know that this is a complicated operation, not impossible tho. For us it would be a dream come true! ^^

    • I think he will rather be joining the Premier League as his next step. Not later than 2022, maybe even this year if Dortmund will be missing to qualify for the Champions League. He was born in England, his father was playing there and I think his physical strength would be matching good with English football, but this is just what I guess. It's also a matter of money because Mino Raiola, his agent, will be trying to squeeze millions and millions out of him. Not that I wouldn't like to see him playing for Barcelona, but would they be able to pay so much right now? I heard they are in trouble with their debt, it's reportedly more than a billion Euros...PSG is out of question, I'd say. The Qatari could afford him, of course, but the level of the French League is probably even below the German Bundesliga. I think he will be looking for the highest challenge and that would be either England or Spain.
