Manchester City Contracted Me to Get The Champions League : Erling Haaland Says


According to Erling Haaland, Manchester City "already knows" how to win the Premier League, thus they recruited him to assist them win the Champions League rather than the Premier League.

Haaland, who is 22 years old, scored five goals in City's 7-0 thumping of RB Leipzig on Tuesday, which ensured that City would advance to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

The year 2021 marks City's finest result in the competition, when they came in second place behind Chelsea.

Haaland stated that it should come as no surprise that the club's goal is to win the Champions League.

They have won the Premier League four out of the previous five times it has been played. They already know how to win the Premier League, therefore they didn't need to bring me in since they already know how to win it.

It seems that you are able to read between the lines. I came to the club in the hopes of assisting in its further growth and in achieving its ultimate goal of winning the Champions League.

The recent success that City has had in the domestic competition stands in stark contrast to their inability to win the Champions League.

Since 2008, when Sheikh Mansour took over as owner of the club, they have won a total of 17 trophies, including six titles in the Premier League. Four of those titles were won after Pep Guardiola was hired as manager in 2016, meaning the team has made significant strides since then.
