“I don’t compare myself to Mbappé,” said Haaland.

According to Erling Haaland, Kylian Mbappé of Paris Saint-Germain and the France captain appear set to unseat Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the two most important players in world football over the course of the next ten years.

However, Mbappé plays for Manchester City.

In the 30-person shortlist of candidates for the 2023 Ballon d’Or, Haaland and Mbappé were announced earlier this week.

Aged 23 and 24, respectively, the pair’s incredible goalscoring feats are frequently compared by the international media, rehashing the head-to-head narrative that former PSG player Messi and former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo have been in for much of the last 15 years.

With 56 goals in competition compared to Mbappé’s 54 for club and country, Haaland won the honor of being the top goalscorer in the world in 2022–2023.

However, the Norway international claimed to France Football that he cannot see the two engaging in close combat combat.

The things Messi and Cristiano have done are absolutely insane, you have to emphasize that, Haaland said.

You also need to keep in mind that, despite getting older, they are still performing this activity.

They are still outstanding athletes.

But I never express myself as being against other players because that is not how I see the world.

I put all of my attention on improving myself, so I can continue doing what I love and being the best version of myself.”.

Haaland acknowledges that he does watch his international competitors play, despite not publicly comparing himself to them.

Of course, I watch a lot of football on television, he admitted.

You could say that football consumes all of my time—both personally and professionally—because I have always had a deep love for the game.

However, there are so many competitions and practices that I also need to consider recovery.”.
