Manchester City forward Erling Haaland spoke with reporters about the footballer who inspired him as a child.

According to the Norwegian striker, he was Al-Nasr and Portugal national team forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I always watched Ronaldo, noticing his movements in the penalty area. He would make two or three movements before getting into the desired area. It was a kind of duel with the defenders. It was important to do it at the perfect moment. Also, you had to serve the ball well If you don't have an accurate pass, you won't be able to score with a header.

Who else besides Ronaldo inspired me? He's in charge. The way he moved developed his playing style. Remember how he played for Manchester United and then in his early years at Real Madrid? At Real Madrid he became a forward. That was incredible. And also the way he scored goals. It’s all about subtle movements in the penalty area and the ability to deceive defenders", - Haaland told TV 2.
