Erling Haaland repeatedly refuses to answer question when quizzed live on Sky Sports | The Sun
4th May 2023

ERLING HAALAND refused to share his plans on how he wants to celebrate after breaking another goal-scoring record.

The Manchester City talisman claimed his 35th goal in just 31 Premier League appearance's during last night's 3-0 win over West Ham.

But he stopped short of revealing how he would celebrate his latest incredible achievement.

The 22-year-old chipped home the second goal of the evening, after Nathan Ake's header had put City in front.

This saw the Norwegian overtake the previous record tally of 34 – set by Andy Cole and Alan Shearer during the 1993-94 and 1994-95 campaigns respectively.

When asked how he planned to celebrate the sensational milestone, Haaland insisted it would be business as usual.

Manchester City are on the hunt for a remarkable treble – a unique feat treasured by their neighbours Manchester United.

Haaland took a relaxed view when he told Sky Sports: "It's a special night and a special moment.

"I will go home and play some video games, have some food, sleep and then tomorrow I will come in and think about Leeds. This is my life."

Reporter David Jones then asked him to elaborate on which game he was playing, to which the star striker blushed and sheepishly replied: “I cannot say because it is too embarrassing.”

Later on, Jones teased the topic again, and probed: "Is it FIFA, Erling?"

But the striker refused to budge, shutting him down by saying: "I cannot say".

To the dismay of United fans, when asked if he would trade his goals to win the historic treble of Premier League title, FA Cup and Champions League, Haaland simply stated: "Yes".

Haaland now has 51 goals this season in just 45 games across all competitions.

The ex-Dortmund star is just 12 away from breaking Dixie Dean's all-time English top-flight record of 62 in a single campaign.

In a touching moment, the superstar was given a guard of honour by City's staff and players as he made his way from the Etihad pitch at full-time.

Manager Pep Guardiola was also full of praise.

The City manager told Sky Sports: "It's unbelievable how many goals he has already scored.

"He deserved the guard of honour because it's an incredible milestone. Maybe one day he can break his own record."
