Erling Haaland is having the week after winning the UEFA Men’s Player of the Season on Thursday in addition to his PFA Player of the Season award earlier during the week.

The Norwegian striker scored 52 goals last season as Manchester City won the treble of the UEFA Champions League, FA Cup, and the Premier League, as well as becoming the top scorer in the Premier League.
The striker said that he has gotten more motivation to do better this season as he feels good after all he achieved last season and in the last year.

“I feel good; what more can I say? I won the treble at 22 years old, and I am living the dream. It was my dream when I was young, so to do this with my teammates is something special, and I am really happy it gives me so much more motivation. We have to be more prepared and sharper; for me, it is motivation, and I am ready to try and do my best and have a new great season.” Haaland said.
