The former Inter and Milan striker is highly impressed by the Norwegian, who turned 21 in July and bagged 41 goals in 41 appearances for Borussia Dortmund last season.
When asked if Haaland was like a mixture between him and Adriano while speaking on his Twitch channel, Bobo TV.
He said: “I played with Adriano when he was 20 years old, but the Brazilian wasn’t as strong as Haaland is.”
He further added that: “I have not seen anyone in the last 20 and 30 years as good as Haaland in the centre-forward role. Perhaps not even Van Basten was that good at age 20.”
The young striker has also scored 12 goals in just 15 senior caps for Norway.
