New footage of a 14-year-old Erling Haaland ripping defences apart emerges
| Last updated
Erling Haaland has clearly been destroying opponents since he was at least 14-years-old, as footage from the Manchester City forward as a teenager proves.
It's getting a bit dull isn't it? All these goals, I mean who needs them all? Clearly Haaland needs to calm down a little bit, because it's getting disrespectful to the establishment.
The City striker notched up yet another hat-trick at the weekend, slotting three past Burnley in the FA Cup quarter final, and sending his side through to the semis.
It was the sixth time of the campaign that he's slotted the ball home three, including the fives times he's scored against RB Leipzig in the Champions League, with Pep Guardiola denying him the chance for a rare double hat-trick.
For the second game in-a-row, Guardiola revealed that he took Haaland off to protect a record, this time it was PSG forward Lionel Messi.
The Norwegian has won so many match balls from scoring hat-tricks that he's had to start giving them away, at this rate the Premier League will be asking for them back.
But his goalscoring feats are nothing new, he's been bodying defences since he was a teenager, and he's only 22-years-old now.
A video of highlights of him coming through the ranks has emerged, and it's terrifying just how good he's been for years already.
Speaking after the win over Burnley, the former Borussia Dortmund striker said he 'loves to score goals,' which wouldn't have come as a shock to anyone.
"It’s been a good couple of last games, important games. 7-0 and 6-0 before the national team break is impressive and I’m really happy," he told the City website.
"Every goal means a lot to me, it doesn’t matter, every goal for the team means a lot.
"To win 6-0 today is an amazing thing against a good Burnley side. So I’m really happy and the next game is now at Wembley.
"I’m a striker, I love to score goals! But, my focus is not just scoring goals, but to focus on getting chances, when you get chances then there is a good chance that I will score a goal."
Lord knows how many more he'll get this season, it's a scary thought!
