When asked whether Haaland was “the new Robert Lewandowski”, the three-time Ballon d’Or winner replied decisively: “I think he’s even better.” According to the Dutchman, the 20-year-old is a lot ahead of the Polish international, not least because of his comparatively young age: “I think he can do a lot more than we think so far,” the 1992 world footballer is certain.
