Football News

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher revealed that he would choose Erling Haaland over Kylian Mbappe if he were the owner of Liverpool.

Carragher said there was “something” about the Norwegian striker that drew him in, and that he “loved” his celebration against Sevilla’s goalkeeper last week in the Champions League.

Haaland is one of the brightest young stars in football. With his exploits at Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg, the Norwegian prodigy burst onto the scene. His dazzling results secured him a January 2020 transfer to Borussia Dortmund.

At the Signal Iduna Park, the Norway international has maintained his excellent form, scoring 47 goals and providing 47 assists.

The Norwegian international has continued his impressive form at the Signal Iduna Park, scoring 47 goals and assisting 11 times in just 48 Bundesliga appearances.

Meanwhile, Mbappe’s exploits for Paris Saint-Germain have cemented his status as a soccer superstar.

In just 158 games for the French giants, the 22-year-old has 116 goals and 59 assists. Both players have been linked with moves away from their current clubs as a result of their incredible starts to their respective careers.

Mbappe has been linked with a move to Liverpool on several occasions.

Carragher and Thierry Henry appeared on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show to discuss Haaland’s ruthless ability to score goals.

“Is Haaland comparable to a striker like Ruud van Nistelrooy, with whom you might have competed for the Golden Boot?” Carragher enquired of Henry.

“With Ruud, it was all about goals; he didn’t care about going wide or getting interested. Is that your impression of Haaland?”

“Yes, not so much in terms of how they play as (in terms of) their desire,” Henry answered.

“They want to kill, they want to be in the box, and they’re telling the defenders, ‘You won’t be able to live with me,’” says the player.

“I can see you giving the midfielder or defender the look like, ‘hey, are you going to give me the ball?’ when the midfielder or defender doesn’t give him the ball. I’ve had plenty, and I’m ready to score right now. I want to be the person who leads the team to victory.’

“With him, I can see that.”
