Legendary Manchester City defender Richard Dunn believes Erling Haaland must face a difficult task to beat Lionel Messi to win the Ballon d’Or.
The Norwegian striker is in top form after helping Manchester City win the treble last season, scoring 52 goals in all competitions. Including winning many personal awards.
Those performances have Haaland seen as the leading contender along with Messi to win the 2023 Ballon d’Or. However, Dunn believes the
23-year-old striker may be tiring. Speaking to GOAL, he said : “From many points of view, he’s unbeatable, he’s made the difference to Manchester City.” “
If you look back, And thinking about what they’re missing in terms of Champions League glory, it could be a natural centre-forward.”
“I know he didn’t score many goals towards the end of the match. But he just creates problems and makes opposing players keep him on his toes. They might even need two players to follow. “
No matter how the Ballon d’Or award is decided, I think Messi is a more complete footballer, he’s perfect. Haaland There are still many things that need to be improved. He might still be better outside of the box and more involved in the game, but if you look at pure goalscorers, There is no one in the world that comes close to Haaland. สมัคร ufabet
Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have competed for success over the past decade, and it seems that this era could belong to Haaland and Kylian. Mbappe
Dunn added: “I hope we can have a competition like that again. A couple of the top players in the world, I think Haaland is on the path to becoming a superstar.”
“Mbappe needs to settle down somewhere and find a club that suits him. Because the rumors about transfers didn’t help him at all. I think the level he can go to is very high. And the speed he has is amazing. But sometimes you watch him and wonder if he’s happy or interested.” “
Will he settle long-term at PSG or will he need to move to another club? Once we have that settled, I think we might start to see the best of him.”
