During an interview with Sky Sports, Erling Haaland was asked if he enjoyed being compared to football greats like Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Manchester City striker replied: “I don’t need this [the spotlight, like Ronaldo or Ibrahimovic]. I love to have a joke on Instagram here and there but other than that I like to relax and have fun. Basically enjoy what I’m doing.

“I’m a player that’s hungry for goals, gives 100 per cent that wants to win every single game. As a person, I’m a quiet person, I love to laugh and have fun. But in the end, I’m a relaxed person.

“I can get better on everything. If you think I’m good at one thing, you can always get better.

“I love every goal, doesn’t matter if it’s a tap in or long shot, every kind of goal has a good feeling, a feeling I want to achieve as much as I can.”
