Haaland has developed incredible muscle in the past 1 year

Erling Haaland has had incredible muscle development for over a year to become one of the best strikers in the world.

Erling Haaland was originally a offspring with both parents pursuing a sports career. His father, Alf-Inge Haaland, was a professional footballer in the Premier League, while his mother was a long-distance champion in Norway, Gry Marit.

Right from the age of 6, Haaland showed his talent in playing sports when he broke the long jump record at his age when he achieved 1.63m. This is the beginning of an incredible physical transformation of Haaland.

From a skinny boy, Haaland has transformed into a true giant on the pitch with a height of 1m94 and weight 87 kg. But interestingly, Haaland can still run at a maximum speed of 36 km / h, equal to the speed of a track athlete at a distance of 60m.

Borre Steenslid, a physical coach who worked with Haaland in Molde when the 17-year-old said, “Erling’s body meets training requirements very well because his genome is very special. Do you believe it? He gained 12 kg of muscle in just 15 months. It’s crazy and unbelievable right?”.

In addition to following a strict diet, Haaland also dived into exercise like crazy to strengthen muscles. Coach Steenslid shared with Molde players an anecdote like this.

“Erling loves attending buffets and his plate can be called a mountain of food… I’m the one who designed the exercises for Erling and one of them was punching sandbags. But I didn’t expect Erling to break a sandbag into two pieces one day”.

At RB Salzburg, coach Jesse Marsch even had to ask Haaland to go home early to avoid this player from overtraining injury. After stressful and exhausting training hours, Haaland will meditate to relieve stress and help to relax.

The Norwegian striker also used a special glass to filter the blue light from the phone screen and TV, stimulate the body to produce melatonin and help Haaland sleep better. A good night’s sleep has a great effect on the muscle recovery process of young Norwegian strikers.

Why was Timo Werner the most hated player in Germany?

Chelsea’s new signing, Timo Werner was once Germany’s most hated player but is now a respected striker across Europe.

In the 7 years since his professional debut, Timo Werner has scored 88 goals in the Bundesliga, capturing a solid place in the German team and moving from the hated player to one of the most admired strikers in the Europe.

Growing up in Stuttgart’s youth academy, Werner was endowed with devastating acceleration and finishing, which helped him score 3 goals in his first 10 matches as the club’s youngest player.

Seeing what Werner showed on the pitch later, the legendary Mario Gomez of Stuttgart had to say: “Timo is unbelievably fast, has a sharpness in front of goal and a superb finishing ability. He can score with his right foot, his left leg and his head. “

Werner was Joshua Kimmich’s teammate at the Stuttgart academy, growing up together at the age of 13, taking the same jump to Leipzig.

However, while the current Bayern star arrived in Leipzig calmly, Werner’s departure almost ruined his career. Stuttgart fans will never forgive this, especially when he joins the most hated club in Germany.

The hatred then spread like fire throughout German football. After Werner’s blatant brawl against Schalke in late 2016, the songs mocking the striker flooded the stadiums for months in a row.

When he was only 21, Werner needed a sports psychologist to overcome this problem. Werner told Focus magazine that he told him to keep silence all those who didn’t like him by doing one thing only: to score goal.

And he did it excellently. Werner led Leipzig repeatedly to qualify for the Champions League and became a praised player, rather than being insulted.

Since joining Leipzig in 2016, Werner has scored 92 goals in all competitions. This season, he is pursuing Robert Lewandowski in the race to win the Bundesliga Golden Boot.

7 MU players will return after injury for the match against Tottenham

MU will meet Tottenham in the Premier League opening match after the season returns with the reception of 7 players fully recovered from injury.

After more than 3 months of suspension, MU will meet Tottenham on June 19. When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team last played in a 5- win against LASK Linz in the Europa League, they didn’t have 7 players because of injury.

Now, Solskjaer coach confirms his squad is completely complete with every player who is fit to play against Tottenham. Below is a list of players who have been absent from Austria.

Marcus Rashford

The England striker has not played since the FA Cup third round match against Wolves in January due to a back injury. 
Rashford was suspected of resting the rest of the season, but the surprise holiday gave him time to speed up recovery and will make it to the pitch in the next match.

Paul Pogba

Pogba struggled with an ankle injury throughout the season, making him only eight appearances in all competitions.
The French midfielder has been participating in the first-team training for some time and MU fans are excited about the prospect of him joining Bruno Fernandes.

Diogo Dalot

Dalot has only played 10 matches this season due to a muscle injury. He returned to the game against Liverpool in February but was not included in three Premier League matches before the season was suspended.

Anthony Martial

Martial was forced to sit out in the Europa League after suffering pain in the Manchester derby on March 8. The injury is not serious, so he will be ready to return to Tottenham.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Wan-Bissaka did not accompany the team to Austria due to back pain and will now be fit for the match against Tottenham.

Jesse Lingard

Lingard is another player who missed the match against LASK due to an injury but is looking forward to playing.

Lee Grant

Grant underwent surgery at the beginning of the year. The veteran goalkeeper has practiced in recent weeks but did not expect to play in front of Spurs.

The reason Ronaldo never joined the defense at MU

Ryan Giggs has revealed the reason why Cristiano Ronaldo never joined the defense when he was playing for MU when coach Sir Alex Ferguson.

Former player Ryan Giggs revealed that Ronaldo never had the thought of running to support the defense when he was playing for MU. CR7’s play forced Sir Alex Ferguson to change tactics when meeting big teams.

However, Ryan Giggs did not criticize Ronaldo, but explained why this style of kick made him one of the best players in the world.

Usually, the midfielders are asked to retreat to support when the home team loses the ball in order to bring balance. However, some players only focus on the task of attacking when they have special talent to help the home team to score and Ronaldo is one of such cases.

This explains why Sir Alex Ferguson only wanted Ronaldo to play on the opposing pitch instead of running home to support the home team. The speed, technique and ability to score goals of CR7 are very important for counterattack situations and Sir Alex does not want to miss this weapon.

Therefore, when meeting the big teams, Sir Alex Ferguson arranged another player in the midfield to retreat to support the defense for Ronaldo.

Share on beIN Sports, Ryan Giggs said: “The players who escape from the task of defense are the ones who decide to win. They bring more victory so you need to allow them to escape the defensive mission.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is such a player. That’s why Sir Alex added a player in the midfield when he met rivals such as Arsenal. When he met Chelsea, Darren Fletcher was tasked with Ashley Cole because Sir Alex knew Ronaldo did not return to support the defense.

“If we don’t include players like Hazard, Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar, they will be the ones who decide to win. If you are a top player, you can escape the defense, but you have to be special and you have to win more than lose”.

Barca pursue the Juventus midfielder

Barca wanted Juventus’ Miralem Pjanic while the midfielder was still on contract until 2023. According to RAC-1, the intention was met with a major obstacle because Juventus demanded Arthur as an exchange.

Barca is very difficult to release Arthur because they have rejected Inter’s proposal to bring the Brazilian midfielder as part of the negotiation for Lautaro Martinez.

For his part, Pjanic is said to have a bad relationship with coach Maurizio Sarri at Juventus.

Ronaldo was almost MU sold to Barca like?

Cristiano Ronaldo was almost sold by Barca’s former team to Barca in 2009, not Real Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo has spent 9 successful seasons at Real Madrid. He won 2 La Liga titles and 4 C1 Cup championships and countless other individual and collective titles in the Spanish team. In addition, Ronaldo also became the greatest striker in Real Madrid history with 451 goals.

However, history could have been very different if MU decided to sell Ronaldo to Barca in 2009, not Real Madrid. This shocking information has just been revealed by former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon.

However, the plans of Real Madrid and Ronaldo were almost destroyed by Sir Alex Ferguson. Former president Ramon Calderon revealed: “In fact, coach Alex Ferguson did not want Ronaldo to leave because he really did not like Real Madrid.”

“We are a big opponent of MU and have won everything that he wants. Although MU has many titles, Real Madrid has won even more. Perhaps that is why coach Alex Ferguson offered to sell Ronaldo to Barca.

In fact, Barca also approached MU in 2009 to ask to buy Ronaldo, while Calderon replaced as Real Madrid president Vicente Boluda wanted to cancel his commitment with Ronaldo. Boluda even worked with stork Jorge Mendes to agree to cancel the deal that Real Madrid will sign with Ronaldo in the summer of 2009.

“Barca of course was delighted with the opportunity, but Ronaldo was always clear about the commitment he signed with me to join Real Madrid and he didn’t want to change this, even though the violating party committed to compensating 30 million euro”.

The sudden interruption of Barca made many senior members of Real Madrid’s management fear that they would not be able to win any title in the next 10 years when facing Barca with both Messi and Ronaldo. Therefore, CEO Jose Angel Sanchez asked President Boluda to talk with former President Florentino Perez to find a solution.

Under the arrangement of Perez, Real Madrid continues to carry out the Ronaldo deal with a record transfer fee. This is a landmark decision to help Real Madrid reap countless titles in the next 9 seasons with the Portuguese star.

Messi was criticized for walking too much

Former Argentine goalkeeper Hugo Gatti believes Lionel Messi is no longer outstanding, and becomes a buden for the whole team in Barca.

Messi this season is no longer booming as the familiar image. But he is still the soul at Barca, with 23 goals over 30 appearances. However, according to Gatti, that is still not commensurate with the level of Messi and the expectation on the striker.

“Messi and Ronaldo are still the two best players in the world right now. But he needs to play better. Messi is used to playing with a boring pace, walking too much. I believe those who know football are both. will think like me. Come on, play seriously, boy. You have to play better, “Gatti continued.

Messi currently holds countless records, including the most goals scored in Barca’s shirt, with 437 goals in 473 matches in La Liga. However, he was silenced in some of the team’s important matches, including the loss of Bilbao 0-1 in the quarterfinals of the King’s Cup, the draw of Napoli 1-1 in the first leg of the 1/8 Champions League, and the loss of Real. Madrid 0-2 in round 26 of La Liga.

Gatti said that his teammates also bear part of the responsibility when Messi was silent like that. “The same thing that happened to Maradona and Pele, when there was a player like Messi, his teammates would always give the ball to him so that he could decide,” he said. In doing so, they broke the team, because they used to give the ball to Messi, instead of trying their own best.

Today, in round 27 of La Liga, Barca will host Sociedad. If won, Messi and his teammates can reclaim the top spot in 24 hours. The team holding the top of Real Madrid kicks late in this round, making guests on the Betis field at 3:00 on Monday 9/3.
