- Erling Haaland helped Manchester City to a Premier League title in his first season in England
- He is also set to pick up the golden boot after breaking and setting many records
- The Norwegian has revealed two alternative career paths he could have taken if he were not a footballer
Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland has named two interesting alternative career paths he could have taken if he were not a footballer.
He has helped Manchester City to a fifth Premier League title in six years in a productive first season in the English league, breaking and setting many new records.
Only Harry Kane performing a miracle can deny Haaland the golden boot. This would entail him scoring nine goals in Tottenham Hotspurs' final game of the season against Leeds United - the club Alfie Haaland was playing for when the City striker was born.
Haaland reveals alternative careers
Answering random Q&As to Sky Sports, Haaland claimed he could have been a farmer or a welder if he had not been a footballer. He also said that his own song would be his ideal karaoke song, which brings back to light when he told a fan he’d have been a rapper or a farmer.
According to The Sun, the former Salzburg striker has been pictured spending his holidays on his father’s potato farm in Norway and an animal farm, as shared on his social media.
After winning the league title, he claimed he plays football because he still enjoys it and will find something else to do the day he stops enjoying it.
“I’ve always said the only thing I want is to be well. I play because it is fun, if I hadn’t had fun, I wouldn’t have made it this far. The day football isn’t fun anymore, I find something else to do,” he told Viaplay Fotball.
Ibrahimovic laughs at Leao’s rap
Many footballers would have had alternative careers, while some are combining careers. One such example is Rafael Leao, who raps under the moniker Way45.
As Sports Brief reported, Zlatan Ibrahimovic told him to shift focus to football after listening to his songs, but he said that his other AC Milan teammates appreciated his craft.
