«I truly believe in myself. I know I can still make significant improvements; I'm still young. But I think I have a chance to win it this year,» Erling Haaland is quoted as saying by L'Equipe.

It's worth mentioning that Erling Haaland became the top scorer in the Premier League (with 36 goals - a historic league record for a season) and in the Champions League (with 12 goals). However, in the decisive stages of the Champions League (semifinals and finals), the Norwegian remained without scoring, which didn't prevent Manchester City from winning the trophy. Bookmakers consider Lionel Messi the top contender for the 2023 Ballon d'Or.
