106-goal star claims he got his 'sense of humour' from Leeds; linked with moves to the Premier League

Erling Haaland has made comments claiming that being born in Leeds has helped with his sense of humour.

In an interview with The Telegraph, the Borussia Dortmund ace seemed to be indebted to the Yorkshire outfit

The ace’s father, Alf-Inge, enjoyed a brilliant career in England. He played as a midfielder for Nottingham Forest, Manchester City and Leeds United.

Erling Haaland has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks. Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are all said to be interested in the 20-year-old.

The ace has enjoyed a stunning start to life in the Bundesliga, scoring 57 goals in just 59 games for the Black and Yellow.

TBR View: What could’ve been for Leeds amid Haaland comments

Oh what could have been for the Elland Road outfit.

Imagine a scenario where Alf-Inge Haaland never left England. And his son, Erling, was born in and grew up in Leeds.

It’s a move that could have saved the Whites a headache in the transfer market and in their attempts to make the Premier League

Judging by his career development, the Yorkshire outfit could’ve possessed one of the best strikers in the world.

His ability at such a young age is one of the scariest thing about him as a player.

Despite being just 20-years-old, the centre-forward has hit 106 times in just 153 games across all competitions.

You wonder how high the player’s ceiling is after such a start to his career.

It seems the sky is the limit for Haaland, who if circumstances had worked out, could be playing for Leeds.
