Toulouse defender Ruben Gabrielsen revealed that Erling Braut Haaland returned a completely different player than an injury dismissal when the pair were with Molde.
At the age of 19, Haaland is already one of the best strikers in the world who has made terrifying goals this season at Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund.
But Gabrielsen’s first impressions of Haaland contradict his current form, as the 28-year-old remembers when the attacker joined Molde in 2017.

He told Receive French football news: “When he came to the club, he was a little boy … he wasn’t very good at being honest with you. I just thought, ‘Yeah, maybe he can play in Norway …
“And then he got sick and injured, and we haven’t seen him in a long time, and he came back big as f * ck … he was so big! He was a different animal!
“He killed everyone during training … we just started laughing and I thought,” Who is this man? And then it just shot up. ‘
Haaland joined Dortmund in January this year after scoring 28 goals in 22 games for Salzburg, Austria, in the first half of the season.

And the striker has continued where he left off in Germany, scoring 12 goals in 11 games so far in all competitions for the Bundesliga club.
Haaland’s goals have taken everyone by surprise this season, but not Gabrielsen who revealed that the attacker would find the net in matches even though he had a bad training week.
The defender added: ‘With Haaland, when he played with me in Norway, he didn’t score in a match training for a week. We laughed at him!

“And when I heard he started the game, I thought,” No way … how can we play with this man !? And after 50 minutes he scored four goals. And after that, things just skyrocketed.
“But I think he learned an important lesson: when things get tough, you just have to work harder. And young players can now learn that. ‘
