Norwegian superstar Erling Haaland has been a sensational addition to Manchester City. The former Borussia Dortmund star took to the side like fish to water last season emerging as a key component for the team. While the striker added a lot to the team with his goal contributions, his presence alone was a constant threat to the opposition, even when the player was not busy scoring goals. English Rugby star recently talked about his teammate in an interview with BBC, adding that he could learn a lot from Haaland.

“You want to be having your influence in attack, scoring tries, and having those moments, but equally the most important games, the hardest games, aren’t like that.

Those Test matches in knockout games are not about scoring lots of tries, it’s about making the least mistakes, a game of chess. It could also come down to a moment of magic.”
