Manchester City’s new goal machine Erling Haaland scoffs at six meals a day to stay in top shape.
The 6-foot 4-inch Norwegian hotshot eats “like a bear” and devours swordfish, sea bass and sea bream, all cooked with vegetables. He also mocks chicken and pasta dishes cooked without salt or oil, teammates revealed.
He also drinks mostly water and avoids sugary snacks and frozen foods, opting to eat only fresh produce. His father Alf-Inge Haaland – who played for City from 2000 to 2003 – says the diet began after Patrice Evra told him about Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s diet.
The former midfielder said: “I had to be determined to make it in the match. But Erling made all the sacrifices, leaving home at 16 to move to Molde, and he’s much more professional than me.
He was told a story by Patrice Evra about a lunch he had with Ronaldo and Cristiano ate fish, nothing else. Erling is now trying to do the same things because Ronaldo is still at the top, so he shows the value of doing the right things “.
Who will score the most goals next season: Haaland or Ronaldo? Let us know in the comments section.
Norwegian teammate Josh King, who plays for Watford, says he has never seen anyone eat as much as the 21-year-old, who City signed from Borussia Dortmund for £ 64m.
He said, “He’s just a monster. I’ve never seen anyone eat as much as he does. ” Forward King added that Haaland “eats like a bear”, which helps maintain his impressive physique and gives opposing defenders a physical advantage.
According to Atletico, Haaland employs a personal chef who serves him up to 4,000 calories every day. Cheat days are a rarity for him, but he is said to love Indian food, duck and sweet and sour chicken of the Chinese, and most importantly, kebabs.
“I really like kebab (meat), I love it,” Haaland said recently. “That doesn’t mean I eat it all the time. I eat it a couple of times a year when I’m in my hometown. I hardly ever eat it, but it’s still my favorite food ”.
