“This lad could end up being the best player we see in the Premier League… up with Thierry Henry,” Jamie Carragher on Erling Haaland.
Signing-of-the-summer According to Jamie Carragher, Erling Haaland possesses the skills to become the best player the Premier League has ever seen.
With back-to-back hat-trick victories against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest, Haaland has gotten off to a fast start at Manchester City, becoming the first player in Premier League history to score nine goals in his first five games.
Carragher thinks the Premier League is witnessing something exceptional as the Norwegian has lived up to his reputation as one of the hottest properties around since arriving in England.
When asked to identify the team that had the best window and his summer signing, Carragher said Sky Sports News: “Manchester City have had a really good window. They lost a lot of attacking players, but bringing in the likes of (Julian) Alvarez, who already looks like real quality, and Haaland just looks amazing.
“I’m doing City’s game on Saturday at Aston Villa [live on Sky Sports] and I’m excited to watch him in the flesh, commentate on him for the first time and really get a good look at him off the ball as well.
“We know we’ve got a great player in the league, but I think we’ve got something really special that when he’s finished his time at Manchester City or the Premier League, we’ll be talking about him alongside Thierry Henry.
“This lad could end up being the best player we see in the Premier League. He’s made a brilliant start, so I’m really excited to see him at the weekend.”
