Gary Lineker reacts to Manchester City star Erling Haaland’s first half doppin in the FA Cup win over Burnley.
Manchester City star Erling Haaland has already scored twice in the first half of their FA Cup quarter-final showdown with Burnley. Gary Lineker reacted to the Norwegian attacker’s insane goalscoring form this season.
Haaland has scored 41 goals so far this season. Still in his March, the 2022 FIFA World Cup his Qatar season was suspended for a month, so Haaland’s accomplishments are extraordinary.
Lineker praised the striker’s accomplishments as he wrote on Twitter:
“@ErlingHaaland 40 goals this season. 40 in mid-March. Useful.”
Erling Harland Joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund in the summer. After his arrival, he scored 41 goals in just 37 games.
Haaland is also the Premier League’s top scorer with 28 goals and could easily break the league’s all-time scoring record in a single season. Mohamed Salah currently holds his record of 32 goals in the 2017-18 season.
The Norwegian recently scored five goals against RB Leipzig in City’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg. He became the third player in the history of the competition (alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Adriano) to score five goals in one game.
Lothar Matthaus makes a surprising claim involving Manchester City attacker Erling Haaland
Bayern Munich set to face city of manchester At the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. Expected to face Erling Haaland and Co. It’s scary for any team in the world.
But 1990 World Cup winner Lothar Matthaus didn’t take Haaland’s fear factor too seriously. He told his Sky Germany (via Daily Mail):
“Haaland played more against Bayern, but he scored less. Don’t be afraid of him.”
Haaland was Bayern’s direct rival during his time at Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. He has scored 5 goals and 1 assist in his 7 games against Bayern in Dortmund.
Bayern beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-0 on aggregate in the Round of 16. The team, led by Julian Nagelsmann, against the likes of Lionel his Messi and Kylian Mbappe, did not allow him a single goal in 180 minutes. So it’s understandable why Matthaus is confident in Bayern’s ability.
