Erik Edman was a left-handed winger for the Sweden national team (57 games) who retired from professional football in 2013 after playing for Helsingborgs, Wigan, Rennes, Tottenham, Heerenveen, AIK, Karlsruher and Torino. Today he has become famous not because of a risky forecast. He compared Haaland to Isak on Twitter. The first adds 33 goals in 32 games, with 20 years; the second, 12 goals in 34 games, with 21 years. “I know that in Norway they would throw something at my head, but in three years Isak is better than Haaland”, sentenced the ex-footballer and current television commentator.
His opinion has caused a small earthquake in the Nordic countries and the Swedish portal The football channel He has interviewed him to ask for more explanations about that theory: “When Haaland plays as a center forward, in static, he still has things to improve. In recent international matches in Norway it has been seen and I think Isak is better in that field. Technically, I also think that Isak is better and has a better definition. In three years Isak will also have grown and will be at a physical level that will allow him to play in the biggest teams. To play for City, Barcelona or Real Madrid, you need to manage other types of records and have a good interaction with your teammates. Isak is way ahead of Haaland right now. “ On the speed of both, Edman acknowledges that Haaland is above, but warns: “He does not have that long-distance sprint that Haaland now exhibits, but his speed is better suited to a large team than Haaland’s player profile.”
