During a recent press conference, when asked about the comparison between Alvaro Morata and Erling Haaland, Rodri answered half-jokingly: “Obviously Morata is better. I was lucky to play with both of them. Morata has played for the national team for many years. He is statistically on par with the greatest players in Spanish history. I don’t have much to say about Haaland because he has all the ingredients to become the greatest player.”
Thanks to his recent high performance, Morata was put on the table with Haaland. The Atletico Madrid striker scored 7 goals in 11 matches in La Liga. Coach Diego Simeone said that the striker born in 1992 is playing one of the best seasons of his career and his goal-scoring instincts are on par with Erling Haaland.
Also on the rise like the man from Spain, Haaland is approaching the record of becoming the fastest player to score 50 goals in the Premier League. After 2 seasons playing for the Etihad Stadium team, the former Dortmund star scored 49 goals.
With a double against Chelsea last weekend, Haaland continues to lead the Premier League top scorer list this season with 13 goals, 3 goals more than Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah. The Norwegian striker also scored at least 2 goals in a league match for the 36th time since debuting for Dortmund in 2020 – the best statistics in the top 5 European leagues.
