Erling Haaland ‘struggled with bad knees’

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sensationally revealed that Erling Haaland ‘struggled with bad knees’ during their time together at Molde.

He said in a fan Q&A via Sky Sports: “He came as a 16-year-old, of course, you never know with injuries.

“He struggled really badly with bad knees when he came, but I could see someone with a personality.

“I remember him brushing off and putting our centre-back and centre-midfielder, two big, massive lads, he put them on the floor and asked them to get up.

“He’s a born winner, he’s got a great personality. He’s proving to everyone how good a player he is.

“We played against Zenit in the Europa League play-off and the ref came to me after and said, ‘He’ll play in the Champions League soon’. We did know.

“He’s a top personality. I played with [his dad[ Alf, he’s a bit old school in that respect. He’s a winner.”
