I’m in City to win Champions League -Haaland

Former Dortmund star, Erling Haaland has revealed why Manchester City fought so hard to secure his signing last summer.

The Norwegian striker opted to join the Premier League champions from Bundesliga giants at the end of the 2021/22 season after years of speculation regarding his next move.

Haaland has been phenomenal in his debut season at the Etihad Stadium. Speaking to CBS Sports after scoring five of Man City’s goals in a 7-0 win against RB Leipzig in the last 16 of the Champions League, he was asked whether he felt pressure to be the man to deliver the club a first European crown.

“It’s a difficult question because I can easily make headlines with this answer!” Haaland replied.

“But of course, the club wants to win the Champions League. They want to still win trophies. They won the Premier League four times out of the last five years. So they didn’t bring me to win the Premier League, they know how to win the Premier League.

“So you can read between the lines but I’m here to try to help the club develop even more, to try to win the Champions League for the first time.”
