Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland has revealed that his father berated him for missing goalscoring changes against Liverpool during last week Community Shield.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund forward is now following in his father’s footsteps, having joined City this summer in an interview with Premier League’s all-time leading scorer, Alan Shearer says he is trying to be better than his dad, Alf Inge.

“After the Community Shield, he sent me a message that said, ‘Why didn’t you just score?’ Before I played against Liverpool at Anfield for Salzburg he said, ‘For your info, I’ve scored at Anfield before so I have more goals at Anfield than you.

“When I look back, it’s like, ‘How can you miss from there?’ You know it will probably happen to you again. I never sleep well after games. But it’s also motivation to score or do something in the next game after. But of course, it’s not a good feeling – it’s the worst feeling ever.

When I was young it was getting better than my father and getting as good as I can. Now there is something inside me that just thinks about football all the time, about what I can do better. I don’t know where it comes from but it’s there,” he said.

Haaland who made his debut for Manchester City in the 2-1 loss to Liverpool in the Community Shield said the premier league is a physical league with high tempo while admitting he feels the pressure.

“It’s a really physical league, the tempo is amazing, it’s something I like. It’s going to be tougher for sure but I feel I’m ready, my body is ready. A good duel is always nice.

“Of course there is pressure – I’m playing for the champions – but in my head it’s about trying to go out on the pitch, smiling as much as I can and trying to enjoy the game, because life goes fast and suddenly your career is over,” he noted.
