Erling Haaland’s father has spoken about his son’s diet, revealing he ‘copies Cristiano Ronaldo.’ The Norwegian striker is understood to be doing everything possible to stay at the top of his game.
Erling Haaland is the name on everyone’s lips at the moment as the striker continues to score at an abnormal rate. However, his professionalism extends beyond the pitch, to the point where his father revealed the 20-year-old star has mimicked Cristiano Ronaldo’s diet.
“Erling made all the sacrifices, leaving home at 16 to move to Molde, and he is a lot more professional than I was,” Erling Haaland’s father Alfie Haaland told ESPN.
“He was told a story by Patrice Evra about a lunch he had with Ronaldo and Cristiano had fish, nothing else.”
“Erling now tries to do the same things because Ronaldo is 34 and still at the top of the game, so it shows the value of doing the right things.”
The Dortmund’s striker has an insane 33 goals in 32 games for the club this season and has been linked to almost every top club in the world – including Cristiano Ronaldo’s former employers Real Madrid. Haaland is also reportedly on Chelsea’s radar for a summer transfer as they look to bolster their firepower.
The young striker is definitely doing something right!
