Erling Haaland Went From A 'Small Guy' To 'Big As F**k' During Remarkable Body Transformation

Erling Haaland's former Molde teammate has revealed the teenager's remarkable body transformation during an injury lay-off.

Ruben Gabrielsen says the star striker returned to the club after a spell on the sideline a "different animal."

The Norwegian came back from an injury lay-off bigger and stronger at Molde.

Gabrielsen recalls his first impressions of "small guy" Halaand and how he performed in training after becoming a beast.

"When he came to the club, he was a small guy... he was not so good to be honest with you," the defender explained. "I was just thinking: 'Yeah, maybe he can play in Norway.'

"And then he got sick and injured, and we didn't see him for a long time, and he came back big as f**k... he was so big! He was a different animal!

"He was killing everybody in training... we just started laughing and I was like, 'Who is this guy?' And then it just skyrocketed from there."

Gabrielsen continued by saying Haaland would be prolific on match day despite having a poor week in training.

"With Haaland, when he played in Norway with me, he didn't score for a week in training before a game. We were laughing at him!

"And when I heard he was starting the game I was thinking, 'No way... how can we play with this guy!?' And after 50 minutes he'd scored four goals. And after that, things just skyrocketed.

"But I think he learned an important lesson that, when tough times come, just work harder. And young players have a chance to learn that now," he added.

Haaland went onto move to RB Salzburg from Molde before completing a transfer to Borussia Dortmund, where he has continued his ascent to stardom.
