Frank Lampard, manager of Everton, has said he tried to sign Erling Haaland from Manchester City while he was Chelsea’s head coach.
Haaland is a terrific player, according to Lampard, who also expressed his admiration for the Norwegian international.
Prior to Saturday’s Premier League match between Everton and Manchester City, the former Chelsea player addressed the media during his pre-game news conference.
He is a terrific player who can compete at the highest level in any league, especially given his skill set, according to Lampard.
I hold him in the highest regard. When I coached against him while he was at RB Salzburg, I was well aware of everything. Our pre-game planning made it evident what this boy already knew.
“I tried to sign him at Chelsea, but it was not to be. And it was clear what he was going to become, so fair play to him.”
