Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has revealed Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo is an inspiration for him.

The Norwegian youngster was linked with a move to the Bianconeri but ultimately opted to head to the Bundesliga where he made an immediate impact.

Speaking to ESPN, Haaland revealed that current Juve forward Ronaldo has been an important player in his development, in particular his attitude and approach to games.

“You could just see it in Ronaldo’s face that ‘today I’m the man’ and ‘today, I will score goals’ and that’s what he did,” Haaland told ESPN.

“That’s what I like the best, how dedicated and hungry they are to succeed and to be the man in the moment.”
