Erling Haaland has described Pep Guardiola as the best coach in world football following City’s UEFA Champions League triumph.

Rodrigo’s strike midway through the second half was enough to earn a 1-0 victory over Inter in Istanbul and our first title in Europe’s elite competition.

In doing so, we also secured the Treble, with Guardiola becoming the first men’s manager in history to achieve the feat on more than one occasion.

With 52 goals in all competitions, Haaland has played a huge role in that success, and believes the triumph cements the Catalan’s reputation as one of the true managerial greats.

“It’s such a big game, the pressure is unbelievable, you all know that. To work with Pep is really special.

“We have a good relationship and he’s helped me a lot. I look forward to developing even more.

“I’m still young, I have a lot of years left.

“To be getting trained by him every day, the best coach in the world, it’s a good place to be.”

Reflecting on securing the Champions League, Haaland admitted the achievement exceeded all of his expectations at such a young age.

However, once the dust settles, he insists he and his team-mates must devote all our energies to emulating the feat in the years to come.

“[It’s] Unbelievable. In my wildest dreams I would never think of this as a 22-year-old me to be honest.

“But it shows that it’s possible for a guy from a small town in Norway.

“This also gives, I think, motivation to other young people in my same kind of situation playing football in the indoor hall in my hometown.

“We have to defend what we achieved this season. That’s how it works.

“In a month, two months everything is forgotten and we have to attack it again.”
