UCL: He can help them win trophy – Rio Ferdinand compares Man City star to Ibrahimovic


Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has said Erling Haaland can help Manchester City finally win the Champions League trophy.

Haaland produced a brilliant volley to win their group fixture against his former club, Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night.

The Bundesliga side took the lead through Jude Bellingham, before Jon Stones fired in the equalizer.

Ferdinand, working as a pundit for BT Sport, said: “They’ve got that way of winning that they used to not be able to. (Joao) Cancelo crossing that way in the game and they know someone can get on the end of it.

“Zlatan (AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic) is probably the only type of player that could score that goal. Haaland is the player that can make a difference and (help City) go on and win the Champions League.

“He’s a striker that you look at in the changing room and you think “he’s that one striker who just needs one chance. That man will get us out if it if we aren’t at the races today”.”
