Former Ghana international, Otto Addo has lauded striker, Erling Haaland, revealing his biggest secret that makes him a successful forward.
The Norwegian international has courting interests just from top clubs following his explosive season with Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
The 20-year-old goal machine has been a bright spot in both the domestic and European football this season.
Haaland has tallied 49 goals from 50 appearances for the club this season in the German Bundesliga.
He is the top scorer in the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League with 10 goals to his credit.
Otto Addo who mentored Haaland on his arrival at the Signal Iduna Park has sung the youngster’s praise.
“What makes him so special is how he thinks.
“He has got a certain athleticism that he brings with him; he has the body of a sprinter, but I think the main thing is how he thinks.
“He’s always willing to do more than anyone else on the pitch, but also after training in the gym. He has a very, very good mindset of work, he has a good work ethic, he always wants to score.
“He’s never satisfied; if he scores three goals, he wants four. If he scores four, he wants five. So this is a very good mentality to build something up.” Otto Addo told CNN.
Haaland is on the radar of Spanish giants, Barcelona and Real Madrid with his agent, Mino Raiola already holding talks with the two parties.
Reports indicate that English Premier League clubs, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have shown interest in the energetic forward.
Dortmund snapped up the young Haaland in 2019 from Austrian giant, Red Bull Salzburg in a fee reported to be in the region of €20 million.
Prior to joining Dortmund, he won two Bundesliga titles and one Austrian Cup with Red Bull Salzburg.
A highly athletic striker, he has played for the Norwegian national teams from the U16, U17, U18, U19, U20, U21 and the senior level.
