According to Fabio Capello, there is a player for England who is superior to Erling Haaland.
Jude Bellingham is a better player than Erling Haaland, according to Fabio Capello, and has more “technical quality” than his former Borussia Dortmund teammate.
Even with Haaland’s incredible growth over the years, it appears that many fans and analysts agree that he still has a lot of limits in his game.
In a time when elite strikers have grown increasingly scarce, Manchester City’s striker may be the only consistent goal scorer.
Jude Bellingham, according to Fabio Capello, is superior to Erling Haaland.
Focusing on the shortcomings of a player who appears to dominate football from a young age is a frequent way to find out which part of the game he struggles with.
The 23-year-old has experienced this kind of treatment ever since he joined Pep Guardiola’s squad in 2022, especially given he is the star of the world’s most watched league and is the centre of attention.
To the extent that Fabio Capello considers Jude Bellingham will be Kylian Mbappe’s main opponent this generation rather than Erling Haaland since the Englishman is a better player than the German.
Indeed. In my opinion, Bellingham and [Kylian] Mbappe are the two football players that will engage in combat similar to that of [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano [Ronaldo.”
“Compared to [Erling] Haaland, the two of them are more technically proficient. The Norwegian forward is an incredible animal who can score goals and has superb technical ability. However, Mbappe and Bellingham are unmatched in terms of goals, skill, and dribbling.Haaland told MARCA, “It’s an area player, best as a pure forward, as [a] number 9.”
There are advantages to Erling Haaland that neither has
The qualities that Jude Bellingham and Kylian Mbappe lack in their arsenals are the virtues that Erling Haaland possesses, as highlighted by Fabio Capello.
Despite being an exceptional athlete, Bellingham has the generational goal scoring ability of Haaland, who appears to be a genetic anomaly due to his combination of superhuman power and sprinter-like pace.
Similar to how he did during City’s 4-1 thumping of Arsenal the previous season, the Norwegian can also dominate a backline by himself with the aid of such qualities. He also shown how his hold-up play and technical security can continually improve.
When Haaland is calm, his exceptional mobility and positioning enable him to find a way to put the ball in the back of the net and terrorise defences.
Even if Jude Bellingham is among the greatest in the field, it would be unfair to write out Erling Haaland as Kylian Mbappe’s competitor in favour of him.
