“We expected him so much. But it’s sure that it’s an extraordinary start for a player that we consider extraordinary. He has the potential to do these feats,” analyzes Louis Saha for Téléfoot.

“We expect from him what we expected from Cristiano and Messi for a long time. For me, it’s great. It’s great for world football.

The former Manchester United striker unsurprisingly sees the Norwegian succeeding in his move to the Premier League in the longer term.

“He is a player who is physical. But he is a player who is quite intelligent in his movement who sometimes manages to attract his defenders”, he continues.

“He even comes towards the ball to relieve his team a bit.”
