The Norwegian attacker Erling Haaland He assured that he was not “stressed” by his little drought goalscorer before the Champions League final, which his Manchester City team plays on Saturday against Inter Milan in Istanbul.

Haaland smashed the record for goals in a Premier League season, with 36, in his first year in England. He thus helped Manchester City to be champions and now aspire to a ‘treble’ of titles at the end of the season, after also winning the FA Cup.

In the last matches Haaland’s gunpowder has not been so explosive: a streak of four straight games without scoring and a goal in the last seven games.

“I did not expect to score so many goals (during the season), but could have scored more. I have missed many occasions, so I could have scored more. That’s the truth,” he estimated.

Haaland landed at Manchester City at the start of the season from Borussia Dortmund. His arrival seemed destined for the English club will finally achieve the long-awaited title in the Champions League, something that is just a step away.

Manchester City appears as favorites for Saturday’s game. In case of raising the ‘Orejona’, it would emulate the 1999 ‘treble’ of its neighbor Manchester United.

“If you had told me this scenario Before the season, I wouldn’t have believed it.”Haaland assured. “We have believed in ourselves since I arrived here. We only have one game left,” he enthused.

Manchester City was already very close to winning the Champions League in 2021but then lost in the final to his compatriot Chelsea.
