Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has been copying Cristiano Ronaldo’s lifestyle with his pre-match routine and some other factors.
These two players are among the biggest names in the football world, and they are really adored by their fans.
Apart from scoring goals, Haaland and Ronaldo have shared a common resemblance in recent years.
Here are the six signs that show Haaland is gradually becoming the next Ronaldo of the Premier League.
1. Matching fashion
The two players are known for their high taste in fashion and luxury designer brands. Haaland, who is 22 years old, has been seen with Dolce and Gabbana and Burberry.
Ronaldo, on the other hand, who is 38 years old, enjoys wearing Gucci and Jacob & Co. The two players made headlines for wearing expensive pyjamas.
Haaland owns a wide collection of Mojolica prints that cost £2,400 and a Burberry set that costs £1,680.
Ronaldo was spotted in a yatch in 2020, putting on pyjamas worth £1,800.
2. Ice Breaker
In 2021, it was reported that Ronaldo bought a £50,000 cryotherapy chamber from Turin to Manchester United.
The Portuguese striker loves to stay in the icebreaker for three minutes to get his body in shape.
In 2022, it was claimed that Erling Haaland acquired the same cryotherapy chamber to help him stay in top condition. Haaland ordered the cryotherapy chamber delivered to his house in Cheshire.
3. Copycat Diet
Erling Haaland follows a strict diet that does not include drinking alcohol or going to nightclubs. Although he admitted he takes pina coladas.
His diet was changed after he joined Slazburg, and it now contains fish most of the time.
He was convinced that because Ronaldo doesn’t take in unnecessary things and he still looks fit at the age of 38, following him was the best option.
Haaland’s father told him about the story of when Patrice Evra visited Ronaldo at his house, and the French defender said Ronaldo doesn’t eat anything else apart from fish.
Most of the time, Ronaldo’s diet is like six high-protein, high-grain, low-fat mini-meals a day.
4. Lookalike Girlfriend
Both Ronaldo and Erling Haaland have lookalike girlfriends. Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, started dating Ronaldo in 2017 when they met in a Gucci store in Paris.
Rodriguez is a businesswoman, and she has a Netflix reality show. She is the most followed WAG on Instagram, with over 50 million followers.
Isabel, who is 19 years old, is Haaland’s girlfriend, and she left her home town in Norway just to stay with the Manchester City striker.
Isabel met with the football star when Haaland joined a local football club in Norway at the age of five.
5. Pre-match Habit
When Ronaldo posed with his teammates before a match against Real Madrid, many fans saw him tiptoe on his foot. This has been Cristiano Ronaldo’s style for years.
6. Record setters
These two strikers have broken records and many in the Premier League. Ronaldo spent six seasons at Manchester United from 2003–2009 before moving to Real Madrid.
The player returned to Manchester United in 2021. Erling Haaland joined Manchester City in 2022 from Borussia Dortmund.
Ronaldo holds the record for the player with the most international goals. According to UEFA, he has scored 122 goals for Portugal since he made his debut in 2003.
The Portuguese hold the record for the player with the highest number of appearances in the Champions League. Ronaldo has 183 appearances.
However, Erling Haaland is busy making records at Manchester City, becoming the player with the most Premier League goals in a season.
Erling Haaland had scored 35 goals in the Premier League in his first season at the club.
Many have pointed to Erling Haaland as the player to break records created by Lionel Messi and Ronaldo.
