Rafael Pimenta said,“We are so proud of you… and you deserve much more”. Rafael’s words for Haaland despite the player having missed out on an opportunity to win the award speaks about the amount of affection and respect he has for the Norwegian. Haaland was awarded the Gerd Muller trophy for his amazing goal scoring throughout the 2022/23 season. Haaland was the most efficient player with amazing stats in 2022/23 season.

The player scored an incredible number of goals having found the back of the net 56 times throughout the season both for club and country. He was the top scorer in the Premier League and the UCL last season thereby helping City emerge victorious in each of those competitions. Thanks to his brilliance, the club managed to win the UCL for the first time in its history. Hence there is nothing to take away from the 23-year-old beast despite his having finished second in the Ballon D’or rankings this year. It remains to be seen whether the player is able to continue his fine performances in the upcoming times.
