“I want to beat him”: 30-year-old Charlton man now admits he is targeting Man City player

Charlton Athletic No.9 Alfie May has now revealed that he wants to outscore Manchester City No.9 Erling Haaland in 2023.

The 30-year-old made the comment when speaking to Sky Sports.

So, what was said about Erling Haaland? Let’s take a look…

What’s the story?

Since joining The Valley from Cheltenham in July 2023, the Gravesend-born forward has been a revelation.

May has 15 goals in 20 appearances this season and is currently looking to overtake Haaland as the leading goalscorer throughout England’s top four divisions.

The Norway international has 28 league goals so far in 2023, while the Charlton Athletic talisman has 27.

May told Sky Sports: “I saw I’m one league goal behind Erling Haaland in 2023 and so I want to beat him.

“I know he’s doing it at the elite level, but at the end of the year, I want to have beaten him. It’s good to set yourself little targets like that and it puts your name out there, too.”


In reality, May could beat Haaland to the award because the Norwegian has the UEFA Champions League to contend with before 2024, as well as the FIFA Club World Cup in December.

As a result, Pep Guardiola may decide to rest him in several Premier League games.

May, on the other hand, is Charlton Athletic’s talisman, and the Addicks do not have the luxury of resting him.

Haaland has become the benchmark at Manchester City

Many questioned if the 23-year-old could recreate his spectacular goal-scoring heroics at Molde, RB Salzburg, and Borussia Dortmund when he joined Manchester City.

Nobody questions it now, and Micah Richards believes the Norwegian is better than Wayne Rooney ever was.

Haaland has established himself as a role model for other attackers in England, including ones seven years older, such as May.

It is frightening to consider what the Norwegian could do in his career as time passes.
