Many times the way a star player makes it to a major final can be looked at in many ways. Erling Haaland has been criticized for his failings throughout Manchester City's soccer season. Despite being the tournament's top scorer with 12 goals scored, he was unable to help his team win the final against Inter Milan at the Atäturk Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.

Haaland, who is a key player in Josep Guardiola's scheme for City's winning season, was the top scorer to tie Cristiano Ronaldo's record of being Premier League and Champions League scoring champion, and has helped his team win the Premier League in the last few rounds, overtaking Arsenal at the last minute, which faded for no apparent reason.

But the credit for what has happened to the Norwegian attacker does not belong to this budding star alone. Cases like Ïlkay Gündogan, Kevin de Bruyne or Bernardo Silva have been the teammates who have been able to assist the so-called 'android', so this title of the highest trophy that can be obtained in Europe.

However, the epic response he has given to a reporter who questioned him about his performance in this weekend's match against the Italians has been epic. And, above all, it reveals to you how great Haaland's mentality has been since he arrived at the Citizens this year as the star signing.

What did Haaland tell the reporter?

In an interview after the UEFA Champions League final, Haaland was questioned about his miss in front of André Onana in the first half, to which the Norwegian replied: "Don't forget I'm 22 years old. Think what you were doing when you were 22," which left the media representative speechless and demonstrates the striker's maturity at his young age.
