Borussia Dortmund wonder striker, Erling Braut Haaland has dropped a humbling statement lately, revealing the seven strikers in Europe that are better than him in which Chelsea's Timo Werner happens to be among.
Many consider that Werner shouldn't have been named because of his bad form in front of the goal since he made the switch to Chelsea in the summer of 2020.
Meanwhile, Erling Haaland at his younger age has continued to make waves in football. The 21-year-old has scored 11 goals and provided 4 assists in just 8 games for Dortmund this season which is a great start for a forward.
However, according to The Sun, Haaland has named Timo Werner, Roberto Firmino, Sergio Aguero, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Harry Kane, Robert Lewandoski, Cristiano Ronaldo as the strikers who are better than him.

Haaland knows that he's still young and he doesn't want to trespass or exhibit a form of pride towards the strikers who have gone ahead of him (in terms of age and achievements) so he decided to make that humbling statement.
Thanks for reading.
