Vieri: Haaland better than Van Basten in his 20s

Christian Vieri has praised Borussia Dortmund and Norway striker Erling Braut Haaland. “Even Marco van Basten has not been so good at the age of 20”

The retired Italy international is extremely impressed with Haaland, who turned 21 and scored 41 goals in 41 official appearances for his club last season.

Vieri has spoken on his Twitch channel, Bobo TV, until asked if Haaland is a mix of him and Adriano.

“I played with Adriano when he was 20, but the Brazilian was not stronger than Haaland.” the former Inter striker replied.

“I have not seen anyone in the last 20-30 years better than Haaland in the role of center-forward. Even Van Basten was no better than he was in his 20s.”

Haaland has also scored 12 goals in just 15 appearances for Norway A National Team.
