Man City ace Grealish says Copenhagen goalkeeper told him Haaland ‘isn’t human’

MANCHESTER CITY ace Jack Grealish has revealed he was told by the Copenhagen goalkeeper that goalscoring phenomenon Erling Haaland was “not human” after scoring a first-half goal.

The Premier League champions welcome Copenhagen to the Etihad in their third Champions League group stage match.

And Haaland needed just seven minutes to take his tally to 18 in all competitions.

The 22-year-old turned to his weaker right leg.

He then struck again just after half an hour, instinctively finishing into an empty net.

It was Haaland’s 19th goal in just 13 games played and it was the fifth occasion this season that he has scored two or more goals for City.

His frightening form made Copenhagen goalkeeper Camille Grabara question whether he was human.

City ace Grealish revealed to BT Sport: “It’s unbelievable to be honest. I have never witnessed anything like this in my life.

“For the first and second goals, I just laughed. He is always there.

“The goalkeeper said something to me as I was coming back. He said “he is not human!”


“I said ‘you’re telling me?’ Hopefully he can continue this form and lead us to glory.”

Haaland was withdrawn before the start of the second half, denying him 45 minutes to chase a fourth hat-trick of the season.

City added three more to Haaland’s first half.

David Khoholava scored an own goal for the visitors, while Riyad Mahrez and Julián Alvarez scored in the 5-0 win.
