Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has revealed that he’d be a “rapper or a farmer” if he wasn’t a footballer and outlined his desire to be the world’s best.
Haaland became one of the hottest properties in European football after netting a staggering 28 goals in 22 appearances for Red Bull Salzburg in the first half of the 2019-20 campaign.
Six of those efforts came in the Champions League group stages, prompting the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Juventus to show an interest in the 20-year-old.
However, Dortmund ultimately won the race for his signature, after negotiating a cut-price €20 million (£18m/$24m) deal with Salzburg days before the opening of the winter transfer window.
Haaland has since been able to transfer his form in the Austrian Bundesliga to the German equivalent, scoring 13 goals in his first 15 league outings for BVB.
The Norwegian frontman helped Lucien Favre’s side finish second in the final standings behind Bayern Munich, and will be expected to pick up from where he left off when the new season begins later this month.
The former Salzburg talisman was also quizzed on what career path he would have taken had the opportunity to become a professional footballer not presented itself, to which he offered a surprising reply.
