Erling Haaland is a revelation at Manchester City. He has given fans on Instagram insight into his diet, which has made him a superstar.
The Norweigan star uploaded a photo to his Instagram Story of a plate of food he was seemingly about to consume. The plate consisted of strawberries, raspberries, mango and pineapple. The 23-year-old captioned the post:
“So delicious! Always eat your fruit.”
Fruit isn’t the only important food in the City striker’s diet, he also consumes a lot of meat. The Norway international consumes cow hearts and livers, which may be bizarre to fans.
However, he explained his diet in his documentary ‘Erling Haaland: The Big Decision’ (via GOAL):
“Eating quality food that is as local as possible is the most important thing. People say meat is bad for you, but what? The meat you get at McDonald’s or the local cow that eats grass there?”
The Norweigan superstar has tasted success after joining Manchester City in the summer of 2022, scoring 59 goals and 10 assists in 60 league appearances.
He was key for Pep Guardiola’s Cityzens as they won the continental treble last season. He won the Premier League Golden Boot with 36 goals in 35 games, the most in a single season in the competition’s history.
The unstoppable striker also finished as top scorer in the UEFA Champions League with 12 goals in 11 games as he continues his sparkling start at the Etihad.
Jack Grealish sheds light on Erling Haaland’s training regime
Another important part of Erling Haaland’s lifestyle is the way he maintains his fitness. The Norweigan is in top form and has used his imposing frame to cause nightmares in Premier League defenses since his arrival last year.
The City superstar’s teammate Jack Grealish spoke about Haaland’s work and professionalism in the gym and labeled him as the best professional he has ever seen, telling The Daily Mail:
“He’s the best professional I’ve ever seen. His mentality is something you won’t see again. He does everything. Recovers. In the gym. Ten hours of treatment a day. Ice baths. Diet. That’s why he is who he is But I swear I couldn’t be like this.’
It has paid off for the young forward, who was on the list of nominees for the 2023 Ballon d’Or next month. He is touted as one of the frontrunners alongside 2022 FIFA World Cup winner Lionel Messi.
