Serbian FA president claims Dusan Vlahovic is ‘better’ than Erling Haaland

Serbian FA president Nenad Bjekovic has claimed that Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic is a ‘better and more complete’ player than new Manchester City signing Erling Haaland.

Vlahovic made the €80m – including add-ons – switch to Juve during the January transfer window and finished the season with 29 goals in all competitions from his time with both his new club and the first half of the campaign with former team Fiorentina.

Haaland then moved to City from Borussia Dortmund in June for €60m.

Only around six months separate the pair of strikers in terms of age – Vlahovic turned 22 in January and Haaland is about to also turn 22 – and they have a similar physical profile.

Bjekovic, who is always likely to favour his own man, has claimed that Vlahovic is ‘not inferior’ when it comes to raw power and that the Serbian star has a more varied and better style of play overall.
