REVEALED: Erling Haaland's secret behind record-breaking season

REVEALED: Erling Haaland’s ‘magic potion’ behind his 48-goal season is a milk smoothie laced with spinach and kale… with Man City superstar’s dad offering to milk the cows himself!

  • Haaland has netted 48 goals in his first season as a Manchester City player
  • The secret behind his success has been revealed as he drinks a ‘magic potion’ 
  • His father Alfie has offered to help deliver pints to his son to keep up his form 

The secret behind Erling Haaland’s incredible record-breaking season at Manchester City has been revealed as the striker posted pictures consuming a ‘magic potion’.

The forward netted a brace against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final first leg before getting another two goals against Leicester City, followed by a goal in the second leg at the Allianz Arena.

These strikes saw Haaland bring his goal tally up to 48 for the season in a remarkable debut season in England.

Haaland has now revealed the secret behind his goalscoring form as he is powered by milk smoothies laced with spinach and kale.

Taking to Instagram, the striker posed with two pints of milk as he captioned the image ‘me and my magic potion’.

His Man City teammate Ruben Dias replied to Haaland’s revelation, posting laughing emojis in the comments as spirits are high at the Etihad following their quarter-final victory in the Champions League.

Haaland’s father Alfie, a former Man City player, offered to help his son as he said that he would milk cows in Norway and personally deliver the pints to the forward to help him keep up his fine form.

The brilliant Norwegian leaves no stone unturned in pursuit of marginal gains. 

During his time at Borussia Dortmund, he took his conditioning to the next level. 

‘His body responds so well to training because his genetics are privileged,’ former trainer Erase Steenslid revealed.

‘He gained 12 kilos of muscle in 15 months. It was crazy. We built his muscle from scratch. He was always the closest to the buffet and his plate was literally a mountain of food.

‘I designed a circuit for him where at one of the stations he had to hit a sack… and one day he split it in half.’

Haaland even installed a £50,000 cryochamber in his house to help his body recover. Cristiano Ronaldo has used similar technology to keep him in peak fitness. 

Haaland, now 22, uses special techniques to control his circadian rhythm — the 24-hour cycle that acts as the body’s internal clock — including wearing blue-light glasses to reduce the sleep-depriving effects of screens. 

As you might imagine, diet is absolutely crucial and Haaland devours calories – almost 6000-a-day and two-and-a-half times more than the average man should have.

‘I think eating quality food that is as local as possible is the most important,’ he previously explained. ‘People say meat is bad for you but which? The meat you get at McDonald’s? 

‘Or the local cow eating grass right over there? I eat the heart and the liver.’

Haaland is known to eat organs and lesser used lean cuts of animals that can be a rich source of muscle-building protein. 

In terms of the cryotherapy chamber – the walk-in pod can reach temperatures of -200C (-328F) and requires protective mitts to be worn when in use. It pumps liquid nitrogen into the air surrounding the cylinder to cool the body and rehabilitate body tissue. 

The chamber can only be used for a maximum of five minutes to prevent serious risks to health, including hypothermia and frostbite.

Cryotherapy, which is also loved by the likes of Usain Bolt, is thought to help reduce inflammation and injury swelling. For these reasons, it relieves muscle pain and enhances recovery times after games and training.

Haaland also regularly practices yoga as a means of keeping limber and stretching his muscles after they have been in use.

Yoga has been shown to improve recovery, as well as relax the body and mind and Haaland regularly meditates, even making it a  goal celebration, posing with his arms out and legs crossed on the turf. 

One more unusual approach to improvement is Haaland’s desire to aid his circadian rhythm, the body’s internal clock that influences the sleep-wake cycle.

Sleep quality is also important for performance and Haaland catches up when he can

Rather than sleeping in to maximise rest time in the morning, Haaland wakes up early to soak up the morning light.

He said: ‘The first thing I do in the morning is to get some sunlight in my eyes, it is good for circadian rhythm.’

Professor Russell Foster, a neuroscientist at the University of Oxford and one of the world’s most renowned experts on circadian rhythms, previously told MailOnline: ‘Light is critically important for setting the body clock.

‘Morning light helps you get up earlier, while evening light trains the body to wake up later. Haaland will be playing evening games under flood lights, which would keep him up at night.

‘By getting the morning light he is in a sense resetting the clock.’

All of Haaland’s incredibly professional tactics to grow as a player have helped him to net 32 goals in the Premier League this season as Man City are four points behind leaders Arsenal, with a game in hand.

Haaland is a huge reason why Man City are still on course for a treble this season

Haaland is 11 goals clear of second top-scorer Harry Kane and he will be hoping to add to his goal tally when City face Arsenal next week in a top of the table clash.

He will look to get his daily dose of milk, kale and spinach before the match with Pep Guardiola no doubt keen for the forward to remain happy both on and off the pitch as his side seek a historic treble.

City face Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final this weekend and will take on holders Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final after they defeated Chelsea.

In Haaland, they have a predator up front – described on Wednesday by Pep Guardiola as a ‘machine’ – with his best years still ahead of him. 

Pundits are falling over each other to praise the youngster, and Rio Ferdinand said on Wednesday: ‘

Haaland is a handful for any defender and Bayern Munich found out on Wednesday

‘Could he be the icing on the cake to get them over the line? He’s looking like he’s answering every question at every opportunity.

‘Haaland, all his goals come out the box, today, we said about Bayern being high and aggressive.

‘That’s the Haaland they are used to seeing in Germany, you want to go toe-to-toe, this guy finishes and gets opportunities.’

Haaland could prove to have been the piece Man City have been missing all along if he is able to lead his team to the Champions League trophy in his first season at the Etihad but even if he doesn’t, it has been a ludicrously successful first season in English football.
