Erling Haaland Leaves Thierry Henry in Stitches with Ultimate Compliment After Scoring 5 Goals vs Leipzig

Erling Haaland was in sensational form on and off the pitch as Manchester City sealed their place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

After what was a cagey 1-1 first-leg draw at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, City made sure they advanced in emphatic style at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

Five goals from Haaland plus goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne sealed a spectacular 7-0 win over the Bundesliga side.

On the back of the match, Haaland was being interviewed by the CBS panel consisting of Premier League legend Thierry Henry, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher and ex-City man Micah Richards.

After being asked about his five goals, Haaland took a subtle dig towards Carragher and Richards.

Looking at Henry, Haaland said: “It’s an amazing feeling, I think you are the only one that maybe knows how to score a lot of goals.”

The Norwegian’s words left Carragher and Richards stunned, and fans were quick to react to Haaland’s interview on social media.

One said: “Get this guy on the panel too.”

Another tweeted: “His interviews are clutch as well, proper mentality.”

A third fan added: “Haaland has a very good sense of humour, good lad.”

Someone else wrote: “What a good guy, with a great mentality too.”

Whilst a fifth commented: “He’s proper mugged off Richards and Carra there.”

Haaland added: “My super strength is scoring goals. A lot of it is being quick in the mind and trying to put it where the goalkeeper is not.

“I was so tired after my celebrations.”

When asked to talk through Haaland’s performance, City boss Pep Guardiola said: “Five goals...

“The problem for this guy is if he doesn't score two or three goals he will be criticised.”

City will now focus on the FA Cup as they take on Vincent Kompany's highflying Burnley on Saturday.
