Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland has insisted that he will not crave the spotlight like other big names in the game of football he has grown up looking at – namely Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Haaland said this in a conversation with Sky Sports ahead of his first Premier League game against West Ham United on Sunday.
The Norway international joined Man City from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth £51 million this summer.
Speaking ahead of the season opener, Haaland said, “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 percent and 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.”
