Brazil legend Ronaldo reveals Erling Haaland’s flaw and names him just third best striker in the world

BRAZILIAN legend Ronaldo has named Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland as the third best striker in the world, but identifies a flaw in his game.

The two-time World Cup winner picked Karim Benzema as the best striker in the world.

Ballon d’Or runner-up Robert Lewandowski was a close second.

And in third, R9 picked 22-year-old Erling Haaland, who has scored 129 club goals in 173 games.

But there’s something that Benzema and Lewandowski have that Haaland doesn’t.

According to Ronaldo, Haaland doesn’t possess the ‘technique’ Benzema or Lewandowski have, which is why he takes third spot.

Speaking to Marca, the Brazilian said: “Benzema in my opinion, but Lewandowski is very close.

“Haaland will become very strong, maybe even number one, but he doesn’t have the technique of the top two.”

Ronaldo also singled out Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe for praise.

The Frenchman has a ‘coldness’ in front of goal that will make him the No1 player in world football.

R9 said: “He is very strong, he has that speed and coldness in front of goal that will lead him to be number one.

“And I have read the news that he will go to Real Madrid and earn 50 million a year…. We have made the wrong generation ( laughs).

“The football industry is growing so much that it’s only fair that the stars receive more and more money.

“If it’s like that today, it’s because there were players who inspired them, like we did.”
