Erling Haaland Biography

He is a sterling example of the saying that a fruit does not fall far from the tree. Born to athlete parents (his father is the former Ma City ace Alfie Haaland), Erling Braut Haaland had his path in soccer cut for him pretty early.

Although born in England, he didn’t get to play for the English National team as his parents moved back to Norway soon after. There, the young Erling’s sports obsession took root. He had two older siblings who were more than happy to shower him with love and appreciate him as the baby of the house.

Realizing his son would take after him, Erling’s father enrolled him at the Bryne Fotballklubb, where he could water his football talents while getting an education. But even at a young age, Erling had shown an aptitude for other sports, including golf.

But football got the best of him and he made the decision to focus on the sport. It would turn out the best decision he made, as he soon emerged as one of the top talents in the game, not just in the national team but at the club level as well.

Football Career

It has been said that in whatever career one is in, one started from somewhere, which is true. In the case of the Portuguese striker, his interest in football started when he was pretty young. He was, after all, the son of two sports-obsessed lovers who were supportive of his interests.

As a kid, he played football with his friends. He was interested in the sport and committed enough to not only remain consistent but to pursue it as a career. Today, his name is all over the place as one of football’s great goalscorers.

Current Teams

Having confirmed his retirement from football as a result of his knee injuries, Erling Haaland cannot be said to be part of a team. He was previously with Manchester City, however.
