Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has described Manchester City striker Erling Haaland as a machine.

Laporte said: “He makes it look like it is easy, but it is not. He is a machine,” Laporte declared.

“When I saw him playing for Borussia Dortmund, he was a different player and I didn’t realise the potential that he had.

“But when he came here and he has scored that many goals this season, it is something crazy.

“He doesn’t really like to score in training to be honest, he prefers to score in the games!

“He is scoring more goals in the games than he is in training! I think he rests a bit more in the training sessions.

“He is very humble, a top guy and I have a very good relationship with him.

“His mentality to compete is perfect and his level this season is something unbelievable.

“Now he has to keep going on the same way to reach more and more things such as titles and the objectives he has in his mind.

“He will do everything he wants, he has the capacity to do everything he wants to.

“For sure he will reach his objectives.”
