Speaking in an interview with France Football, 19-year-old striker Erling Braut Haaland was asked about the concept of fear.
“Nothing scares me. Wait actually I hate snakes. That is it. No, not at all (on whether he is scared of getting injured). You cannot be held back by that. It is impossible. If you start to think like that, you will never move forward.”
On the period of his youth career where he was forced to stop playing football:
For 4 months, because I was growing too fast. I could not play anymore. It was the worst moment for me. I hated this period. For a footballer, not being able to play, there is nothing worse.
