Haaland, speaking to Sky Sports, insisted he is concentrating on himself.
He said: “I haven’t thought too much about this, although I’ve thought about it now you’ve said it. But I think if we play our game properly, it doesn’t matter who stands in the defense or which team it is.
“I try to focus mostly on myself. Of course, if there’s something in the analysis or the coach tells me something [I will do it], but I mostly focus on myself.”
