  • His left foot has always been clinical, with the Norwegian currently leading scoring charts in the English Premier League

Erling Haaland has taken to Premier League life like a duck in water. Considered one of the best teenage strikers in the world, Haaland took little time to find his feet in Manchester.

After a calamitous debut in the Community Shield, the Norwegian turned on a new leaf and has since scored 11 goals in the top flight.

Erling Haaland's dad reveals Real Madrid was his son's third choice before Man City move

He has formed a beautiful relationship with Manchester City's playmaker-in-chief Kevin De Bruyne. Apart from benefitting from De Bruyne's ingenuity, Haaland's natural ability to position himself has set him apart.

Daily Mail now reports that the former Borussia Dortmund striker is now working on his perceived weaker right foot. To put it into context, only 15 of his 133 professional goals have come from his right foot.

His left foot, meanwhile, is lethal. Maybe not to the same level yet as Lionel Messi's left foot, but he has shown it has the potential to inflict damage.

Haaland has been working on the right foot to bring it almost to a similar level to the left foot. It was a process that he started in Germany under Alexander Zickler.

The early signs are positive as he recently scored with his right foot against Wolverhampton Wanderers from way out.
