Pep Guardiola has suggested that new signing Erling Haaland is on his way to being named “one of the best top scorers of all time”.
The 22-year-old striker showed his quality as he bagged two goals on his Premier League debut against West Ham and is already widely considered to be one of the best strikers in world football, at just 22 years of age.
Guardiola was full of praise for his striker saying: “He is a top striker. If you put the names of the biggest strikers of all time at that age, how many games, how many goals, he is the greatest.
“But he is still a young age. Tomorrow is a new challenge and he is just 21, 22 years old so he has a long career ahead of him. He has a desire to be better so he will continue as normal.
“I like to encourage him ‘you can be a better player, an even better finisher and thinking that your day today will be better than yesterday’.
And so it begins… 🇳🇴 pic.twitter.com/S73pd3wZTs
