Manchester City goal machine Erling Haaland has revealed the two areas he thinks he still needs to step up his game.

Haaland insists he can still improve despite scoring 52 goals in 53 games for Manchester City last season.

The young striker has admitted he’d love to learn how to dribble like Barca legend Lionel Messi.

In an interview with L’Equipe,  Haaland said:

 “A little bit of everything, but perhaps the most important are the header and the right foot. I can always improve with the left, but that’s okay, right? I would also like to improve my dribbling.

“It’s not easy because we play every three days, but with Pep (Guardiola) we work on the small details that allow us to progress each week. The relationship with Pep is very good, but it is fair to say that sometimes he is brutal.

“I would like to have Messi’s dribbling ability. It’s a good choice, right?”
