Erling Haaland reveals watching other players score at World Cup ‘triggered me’ as he sends ominous warning to Arsenal
ERLING HAALAND revealed he felt triggered watching other players scoring at the World Cup.
The Manchester City striker missed out on Qatar after Norway failed to qualify for the tournament.
But he has wasted no time in returning to the scoresheet after putting two past Leeds at Elland Road.
He also scored against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup last week and admitted he was “mad” at missing out on the World Cup.
Haaland told Amazon Prime: “Being home, being a bit mad that I don’t play at the World Cup.
“I was kind of a commentator for the World Cup in my own home where no one listens to me.
“I kind of recharged my batteries and to watch other people score and win games in the World Cup kind of triggers me and motivates me and also irritates me.
“I’m more hungry and more ready than ever.”
Haaland reached 20 Premier League goals for the season in record time but he could have hit a hat-trick at Elland Road.
And he held his hands up after the match, suggesting he still needs to work on his finishing in training.

He added: “We win, that’s the most important thing.
“You see Arsenal at the top, now we have to hunt them, so that we win, I’m really happy.
“I just said it inside (the dressing room), I could have scored five, it’s the truth. For me, as a striker, I could have scored a couple more but that’s life, what can I do? I have to practice more.”
