Norway boss, Lars Lagerback has compared Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland, with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Haaland joined Borussia Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg for €20 million after scoring 44 goals in 40 appearances in the 2019/2020 campaign.

He has now been tipped to reach the height set by Messi and his Portuguese rival, Ronaldo.

Lagerback told a press conference: “I’ve maybe been around too long but I have never seen a guy since maybe Messi or Ronaldo that developed at such a young age.

“That’s very unique and he has all the possibilities to become a really world-class player – if you look at the offensive third of the pitch and in the box then he’s already absolutely top class.

“He perhaps has a little bit more to do in the link play but being so young, he’s already at a really high level.

“With the qualities he already has and his focused personality – if he can stay free from injury then he can be a really top-class player.”
