Erling Haaland has been crowned UEFA Player of the Year for the 2022–23 season.
In just one week, the Norwegian giant has claimed two individual awards, establishing his place in Europe as a force to be reckoned with.
In his first season at City, Haaland has won four trophies with the club: the Premier League, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, and UEFA Super Cup.
The 23-year-old has also begun winning individual awards at his young age, claiming the PFA Player of the Year award and the UEFA Player of the Year award within the space of three days.
The fantastic goal poacher had all the odds in his favour after scoring 52 goals in all competitions last season, 36 in the Premier League and 12 in the Champions League, four more than his closest challenger, Mohamed Salah of Liverpool.
Haaland also became the youngest and quickest player to score 35 Champions League goals in total and became only the third player to score five in a game.
With Lionel Messi and former teammate Kevin De Bryune in the nominations for the UEFA Player of the Year award, a headline that reads “Erling Haaland Wins the UEFA Player of the Year Award” should be a shocking statement. Instead, it is in danger of becoming a cliche, as the Norwegian carves a niche for himself in the world of football.
