Erling Haaland has been doubted by FC Copenhagen’s goalkeeper who, during a recent match, asked whether the Manchester City goal netter is human or not. It all started with his rapid start at Manchester City and he scored twice as his team wrecked FC Copenhagen.
This has increased his personal record to 19 goals in 12 games since joining City from Borussia Dortmund this year. Manager Pep Guardiola gave Haaland a break during half time and fielded Grealish to support the young powerhouse.
Jack Grealish stated ‘It’s unbelievable – honestly, I’ve never witnessed anything like it in my life. For the first and second goals I was just laughing. He is always there.’
Grealish then claimed that the goal keeper told him that Haaland isn’t ‘human.’ He then stated that he hopes Haaland can take Manchester City’s name up to glory.
Manager Pep Guardiola states, with regards to Haaland’s change during half-time, ‘he’s played a lot of minutes, the game was under control. If the game was tight, Erling would continue but it was better to rest for Southampton on Saturday.’
Haaland’s Goal Load at age 22
Erling Haaland is making his name a household name. If he continues on this run, in a few years, he will definitely join the ranks of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in popularity. Besides, it appears that he has scored a total of 173 goals at the age of 22, while Lionel Messi scored 45 goals and Cristiano Ronaldo scored 50 goals at the same age.
Comments were not fully supportive of the young Norwegian on Facebook, as Facebookers stated that they feel Messi and Ronaldo are still unbeatable. More claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo was a winger and Messi was a midfielder and Haaland is a striker hence the comparison is not fair.
There are some users that do understand the fact that Haaland is from a different generation, and of course he will outshine them. In their youthful days, both Messi and Ronaldo had their fair share of the spotlight.
Haaland’s drastic performance increase when he joined the Premier League. It appears that the entire Manchester City squad was waiting for someone like Haaland to get going in their defence of their Premier League title and in their fresh attempt to conquer the European title.

According to ESPN’s twitter account, Erling Haaland is making a ‘mockery’ out of the Premier League games. Why you may ask? He is 9 goals away from last season’s golden boot and there are 30 games still in the Premier League.
Hattrick comparisons, in Bundesliga it took Haaland two and a half years to score three hat tricks. Meanwhile in the Premier League, it took him only 8 games in a season to score three hat tricks. Naysayers claimed that he is able to score wonderfully due to him being in one of the strongest teams in the Premier League.
Jealousy is a poison, it appears that many are showing their jealousy towards the 22 year old Norwegian. Those that do support him claim that nothing can stop him other than if he gets an injury, which then would obviously affect his performance.
