Aguero Compares Haaland To Messi And Maradona. Erling Haaland may one day join the ranks of the greatest strikers in history, according to Sergio Aguero. Haaland started his Premier League career by moving from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City in the summer.
The international player from Norway has 20 goals in 13 games for the Citizens across all competitions, putting himself in a position to break multiple all-time records. While praising Haaland’s amazing skill, Aguero cautions him to maintain his consistency.
“There’s been many strikers worthy of awe I can think of,” Aguero told Stake.
“Each era usually has two or three players with that ability – and usually with different styles.
“Diego [Maradona], Romario, Lewandowski, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, and Leo, of course! Each had their own flair but they were all tremendous scorers to a fault.
“Speaking of Haaland specifically, he’s got potency, athleticism, and a particular instinct for goals, which makes him very dangerous.
“He’s got everything to keep racking up amazing stats, especially being part of an offensively-minded team like City.
“That in turn means plenty of opportunities to score.
“He’s young and has a lot of potentials to continue breaking records. Key to this, of course, will be consistency.”
