Erling Haaland has undoubtedly established himself as one of the best strikers the world presently has.
The 22-year-old Manchester City star has been referred to as the goal machine who scores tons of goals at every club he has played for.
The Norwegian super striker who is fondly referred to as the next general Zlatan is enjoying his usual leisure time after scoring five goals in Manchester City’s 7-0 demolition of German club RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, March 14.
The Norwegian legendary forward shared a picture of himself sleeping on a sofa alongside his match ball on Wednesday morning, March 15.
His distinct mode of sleeping is presumably his top secret which helps Haaland keep his performance up and running off and on the pitch.
According to The Mail, the Norwegian star was said to have been obsessed with how he can improve his sleep, labeling it “perhaps the most important thing in his life”.
And to live a healthy life, the striker has a rigorous and strict sleep schedule and makes use of technology to help him sleep well and monitor different data in his sleep.
Erling Haaland wears orange-tinted, blue-light glasses hours before he sleeps and goes to bed between 10 pm and 10:30 pm each night he does not have late matches.
The Norwegian star also makes sure he turns off all electrical devices minutes before he sleeps to have a blissful night’s rest.
Manchester City’s goal machine, Haaland also makes use of an Oura Ring which measures sleep quality, temperature trends, stress, and heart rate.
These devices help the Norwegian score impressively well alongside the UEFA Champions League alarm tone he uses which depicts his love for the competition where he has scored 33 times in 25 games.
Erling Haaland Breaks Mbappe’s Record
Erling Haaland is believed to be meticulous when it comes to improving his physical condition.
The former Dortmund star broke Kylian Mbappe’s record of the youngest player to score 30 Champions League goals after he netted five wonderful goals against Leipzig.
Erling Haaland also broke the PSG striker’s records for the fastest to reach 20 and 30 goals in Europe’s most famous club competition.
Haaland’s unique diet
The former Dortmund star has bulked up significantly since his younger days at Molde – having a huge physique and a commanding presence that is difficult for defenders to outmuscle.
His diet is notably instrumental in some ways, helping him accomplish a surging success in his career.
Erling Haaland can consume up to 6,000 calories per day, with Norway team-mate Josh King saying Haaland eats like a bear as he claims he has never seen anyone eat as much as he does.
Unique things on his menu include mineral-rich offal, heart and liver as well as fish.
Erling Haaland’s sleep and nutrition measures have apparently gone some way to helping the Manchester City healthy footballer succeed at the very top level.
And the Norwegian shows no signs of slowing down having already bagged 215 goals for club and country in his relatively short career to date.
In addition, his 39 goals contribution in all competitions for Manchester City this season is a club record for most goals in a single season, breaking Tommy Johnson’s record of 38, set in 1929.
