EPL: Nobody will ever surpass Haaland’s goal record – Phil Foden

Manchester City midfielder, Phil Foden has stated that Erling Haaland’s record goal-scoring Premier League season last year will never be surpassed.

Foden lauded his teammate’s finishing ability and performances for The Sky Blues last term.

The England international told BBC Sport; “I love the way he [Haaland] is. I love how he always wants more from himself, he’s not just happy with the way he is, and he is still so young it’s crazzy to say it.

“And what he did last year, I don’t think we will ever see it again to be honest unless he breaks his own record.”

He added; “He’s so demanding of himself, and if we can find him in those areas, we know he is always going to be in the right position. He’s got this instinct for goal, it is just a pleasure to play with someone who’s this good.”

Haaland was in exceptional form for Manchester City last season, helping Pep Guardiola’s side to win Treble – FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League.

The Norway international scored 52 goals and registered nine assists in 53 games across all competitions for Man City.

Meanwhile in another news…

Former Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that he suggested buying Erling Haaland in 2018.

He told UK Sun that he recommended £4million be paid for the Norway forward, but United’s management refused.

According to Solskjaer, this happened six months before he took charge at Old Trafford. In the same year, Haaland moved to Red Bull Salzburg and later played for Borussia Dortmund before his £51.2 million move to United’s rivals Manchester City last year.

Solskjaer said; “I called United about six months before I took over and told them that I’d got this striker that we had but they didn’t listen. I asked for £4million for Haaland but they didn’t sign him”.
