Erling Haaland has eyes for UCL glory at Man City
Erling Haaland is determined to get Manchester City over the line in his “favourite tournament” the Champions League this season as the Norwegian superstar was unveiled by the Premier League champions on Sunday.
The 21-year-old was greeted by around 5,000 adoring City fans at the Etihad Stadium and did not hold back in his promise to help deliver more trophies after signing from Borussia Dortmund for a reported fee of 60 million euros (£51 million, $63 million).
Erling Haaland had his pick of Europe’s top clubs thanks to a buyout clause below his market value and a stunning record of 86 goals in 89 games for Dortmund.
His statistics at Champions League level are even more impressive with 23 goals in just 19 appearances for Salzburg and Dortmund.
City have won four Premier League titles in the last five seasons under Pep Guardiola, but the biggest prize in European football has continued to allude them.
“The Champions League is my favourite competition so I think you have the answer there,” said Haaland on whether he can be the difference maker when it counts in Europe.
Despite his goalscoring record, Haaland won only one trophy, the 2021 German Cup, during his time at Dortmund.
