Manchester City’s ‘monster striker’ Erling Holland (23) of the English Premier League (EPL) achieved everything he could achieve in his first season in the EPL.
In the 2022-23 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) final against Inter Milan (Italy) held at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Turkiye on the 11th (Korean time) on the 11th (Korean time), Man City scored the winning goal by Rodri in the 23rd minute of the second half to 1-0. won with This is the first win in Manchester City’s history.안전놀이터
Man City won the EPL and the FA Cup this season, followed by the UCL and recorded a’Treble (three crowns)’. It is the first time in 24 years since Manchester United in 1999, led by Sir Alex Ferguson, that an EPL team has won all three competitions.
Haaland was at the center of Man City’s best season. With the start of this season, Haaland, who moved to Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund (Germany) and entered the EPL, has achieved great results in a short period of time.
Haaland scored 36 goals in 35 games, including a clear debut against West Ham United in the first round of the EPL, with a multi-goal, and took the league top scorer in his first season.
Haaland easily surpassed Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)’s EPL record for most goals in a single season in 38 matches, as well as Andy Cole and Alan Shearer’s 34 goals in the previous English professional football, which was played in 42 matches.
Not only this. In the UCL, he scored 12 goals in 11 games, including 5 goals in the first 3 games, taking the lead in scoring, leading Man City to reach the top of the UCL, which was a’long-awaited’. Holland is the first UCL summit that I personally experience.
Although he couldn’t show his full condition in the final due to injury, the threat of Inter Milan’s defense was great with the presence of Holland.
Haaland said, “I still can’t believe I won. But after 2-3 days, I will find stability, and after that, I will try again for the next championship.”
Aside from the EPL and UCL, Haaland flew wildly. He scored 3 goals in the FA Cup and 1 in the League Cup, scoring a whopping 52 goals this season. He is the first-class contributor to Man City’s perfect treble.
Unsurprisingly, Holland also captivated British journalists. At the Male Player of the Year award selected by the Football Journalists Association (FWA) of England, he became the winner with 82% support, the highest ever.
Some had a question mark as to whether Holland, a ‘preliminary superstar’, would be able to perform as well as expected as he took on new challenges in a new team and a new league. However, as if laughing at this, Haaland grew bigger and grew into one of the best strikers in the world.
Haaland’s first season, which won the EPL championship, EPL scorer crown, FA Cup championship, UCL championship, and UCL scorer crown, ended so splendidly.
