Erling Haaland was in fine form for Manchester City last night as they beat Leeds United 3-1 in the Premier League.
The striker scored twice at Elland Road, a stadium where he spent a lot of time as a youngster. He was born in Leeds while his father, Alfie, was a player for The Whites. Rodrigo put City in the lead in first-half stoppage time, before Haaland scored twice in the second-half.
Haaland spoke about the pride in scoring in front of his family at Elland Road:
“With my father and mother here today, it’s special,” he said.
“I have to say it’s special. It’s a really special moment in my career. It’s really weird, it’s in my craziest fantasy, to score for City against Leeds.
“I just said it inside, I could have scored five. But we won, that’s the most important. We have to hunt Arsenal.
“I’m really happy, I could have scored more but that’s life! What can I do? I’ll practice more!”
The Norwegian striker has 20 goals in just 14 games in the Premier League this season.
