Inter Milan striker Romelu Luaku has praised Manchester City’s Erling Haaland stating that the young forward has the potential to become one of the greatest players in the game.
Lukaku’s remarks come ahead of the much-anticipated clash between their respective teams in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.
In an interview with TV2, Lukaku expressed his admiration for Haaland, saying, “He is ready to take the last step and dominate the football world.
“He knows what he wants and he is really good at what he does. He and Manchester City are the perfect combination.
“I’m really happy that another striker is coming forward, because it will be a great competition between us.
“It’s something you rarely see. We have had Messi and Ronaldo, and Haaland’s hunger is reminiscent of theirs.”
Haaland is Champions League top scorer for this season with 12 goals.
