Erling Haaland admits he was 'dead' after Manchester City training session - Striker also learning Spanish

Erling Haaland admitted that one Manchester City training session had him feeling 'dead', a new report has revealed.

The Norway international forward has settled in to life with the Premier League champions with ease.

Scoring a spectacular 20 goals in his first 14 matches for Manchester City, Erling Haaland has proven plenty of people wrong who may have doubted his ability to adapt to the English game.

Haaland's three assists under Pep Guardiola so far takes his overall goal contributions tally up to an outrageous 23.

But that output in competitive matches does not come without sheer hard work out on the City Football Academy training surfaces.


A new report has highlighted Erling Haaland's exemplary training work ethic, and how certain exercises since joining the Etihad club have seen the striker totally run dry of energy.

According to the information of Alvaro de Grado of Relevo, Erling Haaland's competitiveness seen in official matches is also evident in Pep Guardiola's Manchester City training sessions.

The report quotes a source within the club, who states, "He (Erling Haaland) gets angry with himself when he misses an opportunity."

One particular example is referred to, when Erling Haaland found himself at the centre of a Rondo exercise, chasing down Manchester City players' passes.

It is revealed that at the end of the exercise, the Norwegian forward said that "he was dead," and that he needed to be treated by physiotherapists in order to recover better.

Another interesting aspect of Erling Haaland's adaptation to life at Manchester City is his language education.

Relevo reveal that Erling Haaland is now interested in learning to speak Spanish.

While some may believe this is a clear indication of his desire to join Real Madrid or Barcelona in future, the report quite rightly points out that Spanish is one of the most spoken languages within the Manchester City squad thanks to the number of players and coaching staff that speak it on a daily basis.

City will be looking to Erling Haaland to get them back to winning ways as soon as possible.

Pep Guardiola and his players fell to a frustrating defeat at Anfield on Sunday afternoon - a game that saw Erling Haaland fail to score, and Mohamed Salah register the only goal of the affair.

Manchester City next take on Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, after their scheduled midweek trip to Arsenal was postponed due to the Gunners requiring additional time to stage European fixtures.
