Erling Haaland is on a rampage right now. He’s removed any and all doubt fans had over whether he will be able to adapt to the change of joining Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund.
While felt his goal-scoring antics will be slowed down by the intensity of the ‘best league of the world’, Haaland is making a mockery of all those claims.
He’s already scored 11 goals in just 7 Premier League games. That is almost double the number of goals (6) scored by Harry Kane and Aleksandar Mitrovic – who sit in second place.
The Norwegian striker is proving to be that last piece of the puzzle that will take the reigning Premier League champions to the next level. He’s ruthless in the box and versatile with his finishing.
Haaland might be a goal machine on the pitch, but he doesn’t seem to have developed any arrogance that often comes to players of his stature.
The 22-year-old is actually a very down-to-earth, humble person in real life. Perhaps the best example of that are his super-awkward interviews after matches.
The Norwegian might be infuriating rival fans with his goal-scoring antics that keep winning games for City, but a particularly sweet moment before the Wolves game has earned him widespread respect.
A video of the Citizens’ pre-match routine has gone viral in which the players can be seen taking off their jackets and carelessly throwing them at the kit man Brandon Ashton.
The majority of players can be spotted just stripping off their attire and then throwing it to the ground for the kit man to pick it up on his time.
Jack Grealish appeared especially obnoxious as he threw his coat in the kitman’s face.
However, Haaland shows admirable manners in actually folding his jacket up properly before personally handing it to Ashton, lowering his workload a little bit.
The 22-year-old forward gets a pat on the back from City’s long-time kit man for his admirable act and things like this will undoubtedly only increase his popularity among the City staff.
The 22-year-old seems to have settled into his new club perfectly, both on and off the pitch.
He will be gunning to continue his goal-scoring heroics for the Citizens all through the season and help them wrap up their third successive Premier League title – as well as possible end their European curse and lift the Champions League title.
