I’D SWAP ALL MY GOALS TO WIN TREBLE – HAALAND SAYS AFTER BREAKING PL RECORD
Erling Haaland claims he would gladly swap all 51 goals he has scored during a record-breaking debut season with Manchester City in exchange for winning the treble.
Haaland scored again on Wednesday night in City’s 3-0 victory over West Ham at the Etihad and go one point above Arsenal, with a game in hand, at the top of the Premier League table.
The former Dortmund star spoke after breaking the record for individual goals in a single Premier League season, Haaland simply replied “yes” when asked if he would trade his goals for three trophies this season.
City are set to face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals this month and will play Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley in June, meaning they are closing in on a remarkable treble.
Celtic and Manchester United are the only British sides to have won the league, cup and Champions League/European Cup in the same season, while Pep Guardiola achieved the feat with Barcelona during his first season in charge of the club.
Haaland, after breaking Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer’s single-season Premier League goals record, will now be looking to chase down Dixie Dean’s all-time English record of 63 goals in a top-flight campaign which is already impossible this season.
However, the Norway international dismissed those suggestions and insisted he has his immediate sights on something more low-key, saying: “I don’t think of this now. We cannot keep speaking about these records or I will become crazy in my head.
“I will go home now, play some video games, eat something and sleep. That’s my life.”
