Manchester City’s star striker, Erling Haaland, has candidly expressed the weight of expectations he carries as the club’s talisman in their pursuit of the elusive Champions League glory. The 22-year-old Norwegian, who has had a phenomenal season, scoring 52 goals in as many matches, is acutely aware of the historic significance of the upcoming final against Inter Milan.

The Premier League champions have had an impressive run, securing both the Premier League title and the FA Cup. However, the Champions League trophy remains a missing piece in their illustrious cabinet. Haaland, who joined City from Borussia Dortmund last summer, is determined to fill this void. “Of course I feel pressure,” Haaland confessed. “I’m here to try to do a thing that the club has never done before, and I’ll do my best.”

Despite a recent scoring drought, with just one goal in his last seven games, Haaland remains optimistic. He chooses to view his performance from a broader perspective, focusing on his overall contribution to the team. “You can think of it as one goal in seven games or 52 goals in 52 games and eight assists,” he said, reflecting his unwavering confidence.

Interestingly, Haaland sees criticism as a positive force. He believes that criticism often follows success and uses it as motivation to perform better. “When people criticise you, it’s normally a good thing. It’s just about trying to smile a bit and enjoy life,” he added.

As Manchester City prepares for the Champions League final, the anticipation and pressure are palpable. However, with Haaland leading the charge, the club and its fans remain hopeful. The upcoming match isn’t just about winning a trophy; it’s about making history, and Erling Haaland is at the heart of it.
