Luis Fabiano, the former football player from Brazil, stated that he thought he could outperform Erling Haaland, the Manchester City star striker.
After an incredible season in the English Premier League, Haaland was able to secure the 2022–2023 Gerd Muller Awards as the world’s finest striker. He breaks records and outperforms his colleagues around Europe.
“I, too, could have broken all the records that Haaland achieved if I had been given the opportunities he had at Manchester City under the leadership of Pep Guardiola,” Fabiano said in comments that were published by the Spanish publication AS.
And he went on, “With this group? I would have outnumbered Haaland. With my skill in front of goal, I could have scored ten or even twenty goals if I had been given thirty chances.”
Fabiano played in Europe for clubs including FC Porto in Portugal, Sevilla in Spain, and Stade Rennais in France before retiring in 2018.
Fabiano‘s career was marked by a number of successes, one of which was the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup victory with the Brazil national team. Along with his one UEFA Super Cup victory, he also won two UEFA Cup titles with Sevilla.
In 149 La Liga games, Fabiano scored 72 goals. Along with it, he got 45 caps for the Brazil national team, scoring 28 goals in those games.
