Manchester City striker Erling Haaland seems to be taking real steps to become the best striker in the world, as the numbers of the Norwegian striker would be driving him to lead the current football, while icons as Cristiano Ronaldo could be going progressively behind the Citizen star.

Pep Guardiola chooses the best between Ronaldo, Messi and Haaland

In addition, the public opinion on both players would have recently been really different, with Haaland being praised and hailed by his coach Pep Guardiola while Cristiano Ronaldo receives huge criticism from Saudi media these days.

In this sense, it would be worth remembering that Guardiola defended Haaland from the media criticism saying that “not even Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo have the scoring numbers of Erling Haaland nowadays”, while the Portuguese superstar was involved in an extra footballistic controversy.
