Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland has named seven strikers in world football that are currently better than him.
According to Haaland, the seven forwards who clearly outperform him at present are Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo, Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Man City’s Kun Agüero, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino and Chelsea’s Timo Werner.
The 20-year-old chose them in an interview with a Norwegian outlet, the ‘Verdens Gang’.
The Norway international didn’t choose other attackers of much quality like Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar because he focused on those footballers more specialists in the finish.
Among the notable players not mentioned are Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.
However, each of the other five strikers Haaland ranks above himself currently play in the English Premier League (EPL), while the other two players (Lewandowski and Ronaldo) play in the Bundesliga and Serie A, respectively.
Meanwhile, Haaland is currently the highest goal scorer in the Champions League this season with ten goals.
His club, Dortmund was eliminated from the Champions League quarter-final stage by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on Wednesday.
