Striker Erling Haaland has built an impressive muscle mass after nearly a year at Man City.
The photo comparing Haaland’s body when he just arrived at Man City and after winning the treble caused a fever on social networks. One fan commented: “This guy is a monster”. Another account shared: “Perhaps it’s thanks to Haaland exercising and eating right.”
Before coming to Man City, Haaland once surprised the public when he gained 12 kg of muscle within 1 year. Sharing with Knowledge Online, commentator Shebby Singh commented: “Haaland has better muscles and technique than Zlatan Ibrahimovic. This striker is not like Cristiano Ronaldo , who relies heavily on speed in the way of play.” .
Man City is very careful in taking care of Haaland or other players’ health. Pep Guardiola sent Mario Pafundi, the team’s fitness coach, to closely follow Haaland even when he joined the national team. From an injured player in Dortmund’s shirt, the striker born in 2000 maintained an impressive physique in the 2022/23 season and helped Man City win the historic treble.
Diet is also focused by Haaland. According to AS, the 22-year-old striker consumes about 6,000 calories a day to keep his body healthy. Haaland’s favorite dishes include beef heart and liver. The former Dortmund star eats 6 meals a day. He mainly drinks water, avoids sugary foods and frozen foods, and only eats fresh food.
“I have never seen a player eat as much as Haaland,” said Joshua King, Haaland’s teammate in the Norwegian national team.
Haaland scored 12 goals in the 2022/23 Champions League and won the tournament’s top scorer title, far ahead of second-placed Mohamed Salah (8 goals). In the Premier League, he is also the leader in the race to score goals with 36 goals.
