Former Argentina striker, Sergio Aguero, has said Manchester City’s Erling Haaland has the potential to be the Lionel Messi of the next generation as he will keep breaking records.
Aguero also put Haaland in the same bracket with names like Brazil legend Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona and Robert Lewandowski.
“There’s been many strikers worthy of awe I can think of. One of my favourites was Ronaldo [Nazario].
“Each era usually has two or three players with that ability – and usually with different styles.
“Diego [Maradona], Romario, Lewandowski, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, and Leo, of course! Each had their own flair but they were all tremendous scorers to a fault,” Aguero said to Stake.
