Erling Haaland Announces His Arrival
Many clubs were keen to sign Haaland after he displayed his strength and finishing ability at Borussia Dortmund. He chose Manchester City to join, who paid €60 million to activate his release clause.
In his first appearance for City in the Community Shield, Haaland missed a goal from open, and City ended up losing 1-3. After the game, he was trolled for his miss and many were reminded that this is one of the toughest leagues in the world. However, the Norwegian was quick to respond to all the critics, and his first Premier League game, he scored 2 goals against West Ham.
Then after two weeks, he helped his team to achieve a comeback after going 3-1 down against Newcastle, where he scored the second half to make the score 3-2. Haaland never saw back from there and has been scoring goals regularly since then.
In the very first season with Cty, he has won the Premier League trophy and will be playing in UCL and FA Cup Final in the next month.
