Erling Haaland has received guidance on how to ascend to the levels of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Manchester City forward acknowledged to have a “long way to go.”

The Norwegian striker has established himself as a prolific force, securing several major honors already in his career.

However, experts emphasize that achieving the status of Messi and Ronaldo requires sustained excellence over time.

Haaland has shown promise in his debut season at Manchester City, netting an impressive 52 goals following a successful stint at Borussia Dortmund.

His contributions were instrumental in securing a historic treble of the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup for City.

Despite facing some injury setbacks this season, Haaland has continued to deliver on the pitch, adding 29 goals to his tally.

While he has narrowly missed out on individual accolades like the Ballon d’Or and FIFA Best awards, observers anticipate that such recognition will come his way in the future.

Gerard Pique, a World Cup winner who has played alongside Messi and Ronaldo at Barcelona and Manchester United respectively, offered his perspective on Haaland’s trajectory.

Pique highlighted the importance of sustained success over many years in reaching the heights of Messi and Ronaldo. He remarked, “He has to win so many titles, he has to do this for 15, 17, 20 years and this is not easy also.”

Looking ahead, Manchester City aims to defend their 2023 trophies with Haaland playing a crucial role in Pep Guardiola’s plans. However, managing the 23-year-old’s fitness remains a priority to ensure his continued success.
