Haaland cousin’s scorecard: 64 goals in 37 matches!

Erling Braut Haaland is one of the most in-demand strikers in world football and some of his ability is genetic, as his father Alf-Inge Haaland made a name for himself in England during the 1990s.

Now, another member of the family is emerging as 17-year-old Albert Braut Tjaaland is impressing in the youth teams of Molde, the Norwegian club that also helped produce Erling Haaland.

The teenager – who is the cousin of the Borussia Dortmund player – only just turned 17 on February 11 and is making waves with his goalscoring record, having netted 64 goals in 37 matches.

His main position is centre-forward and he could be the latest member of this talented family to make it at the elite level in Europe.

Meanwhile, Alf Ingve Berntsen, who coached Erling Haaland during his days at Bryne FK, believes that the striker has the ability to be a success at Real Madrid.

Right now, though, the coach made clear that staying at Borussia Dortmund could be a good option too.

“I think that, right now, Dortmund is a perfect club for Erling,” Berntsen told Bernabeu Digital.

“He is only 20 years old and can still develop and improve at Dortmund. But now he is also at a level where he can move to the top clubs and be successful.

“So both options, staying or moving, would be right for Erling.”

Real Madrid have been strongly linked with Haaland, and Berntsen thinks the only thing that will get in his way now are injuries.

“Erling could succeed in any team, including Real Madrid,” he stated.

“He will continue to score many more goals in the coming years. Only an injury can stop him. I think his next team will be a very lucky team.”
