Champions: Haaland “Inter is excellent, but City are still hungry” – Football

(ANSA) – ROME, 08 JUNE – In his first season at Manchester City he has already scored 52 goals between the Premier League and the cups, five of which in a single Champions League match, against Leipzig. And on Saturday, in the final of the most prestigious continental tournament, Erling Haaland, 22, wants to end with a bang, conquering the trophy that the English club has been chasing for years.

After becoming City’s top scorer in a single season, overtaking Tommy Johnson’s 94-year record of 38 goals, the Norwegian striker now has an “excellent Inter” in his sights, as he defines it in a interview on the UEFA website. You’ve already won the Premier League and the FA Cup, but playing on the turf of the Istanbul stadium “will be special. I’ve always dreamed of playing in the Champions League final and it will be an honor to be there. But above all, there’s a game to win. We’ve had an incredible season , and we have to finish it in the best possible way. I know that we will all give our all to win against an excellent Inter. We can’t wait to get on the pitch.”

In 10 appearances in the tournament he scored 12 goals, at an average of 1.21 per game. A figure never seen in the history of the Champions League.

“I knew that in this team I would have the chance to score a lot. When you have so many champions around you who create chances for you, or open up spaces for you, then everything is easier. We all share the same hunger for victories every single day. I’m lucky to have team-mates who help me do my job: put the ball in the back of the net. What do I do next? I immediately focus on the next goal.”

Haaland doesn’t forget the coach who helped him settle in quickly: “I’ve already learned a lot from Pep (Guardiola, ed) and I’m sure I’ll have more.” (HANDLE).
