‘He was a Leeds fan and a [Manchester] City fan and a Nottingham Forest fan. He followed me but that’s what you do in your youth,’ Haaland told talkSPORT.

‘There’s a difference between being a supporter and having it as a job.

‘I think at one stage he would like to play in the Premier League. When that’s going to happen, I don’t know. It’s a very tough league.

‘Up to now he’s ahead of the stage we thought he would be at. He’s built for the Premier League at one stage, I think. Whether that happens now or at a later stage, we don’t know.’
