0 33

Romelu Lukaku admits that Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe will dominate football for 10 years.

Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku believes that Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and PSG Kylian Mbappe rivalry will continue for a long time in football.

Haaland has broke the record after scoring 36 Premier League goals in 38 games in his first season with Man City.

The Norwegian has surpassed Andy Cole’s and Alan Shearer’s respective tallies of 34 goals in a 42-game season. In total, the Norway international has scored 52 goals in 52 appearances to spearhead City’s treble pursuit.

Meanwhile, Mbappe netted 41 goals across 43 appearances in all competitions for Paris Saint-Germain as the French forward claimed his sixth Ligue 1 title.

Speaking to CNN senior sport analyst Darren Lewis, Lukaku said: “I think he [Haaland] will dominate, with Mbappe, world football for the next 10 years.
“They will be fighting from the new generation. They will really take over (from Messi and Ronaldo) in the next two years.”
Lukaku looked in more detail at the test which Inter face on Saturday in Istanbul, and knows the Serie A side will be huge underdogs in Turkey.
“It’s a beautiful thing, playing probably against the best team in the world. I just want to enjoy it, not having pressure, just enjoy the moment, enjoy the build-up, go there to have the best result possible.
“Man City is a well-drilled team. [Pep] Guardiola is such a good coach because every game is a different game plan.
“They have different patterns every game. And you know [Haaland] with these movements and the way how they open defences up at the end, he will get those chances because those movements and the
patterns that they do, they synchronise very well.”
