Virgil van Dijk was once so frustrated with the image of Erling Haaland that he left an interview.

Haaland will look to continue his goalscoring streak when Manchester City visit Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Norwegian striker has already scored 15 goals in the English top-flight, but tomorrow Merseyside trip isn't his first.

Haaland played in Anfield during his time at Red Bull Salzburg, when he started to make a name for himself.

He started off the bench when Salzburg traveled to Liverpool for their Champions League meeting on October 2019, and scored as his team recorded three goals.

Liverpool would go on to win 4-3, but Haaland continued to cause problems for the hosts. Afterwards, Van Dijk was interviewed by ex-Norway star Jan Eiger Fjordoft, who asked him about it.

Fjortoft told the Blood Red podcast : "The first time I saw him [Haaland] live was at Anfield when he came on and I was amazed that this young kid created so much space. He scored one goal but he could have had three or four - he was unbelievable. I was amazed how he created space and how I define that is how his runs are wise and experienced.

"After the game, I interviewed Van Dijk, who I always like to interview because he is a gentleman, and I said 'I have to ask you about the Norwegian, Erling Haland' and he just said: 'Well, we won the game'. So I said 'Yes, but what do you think about him?'.

"Van Dijk said: 'I didn't see a lot of him' and he was a bit angry because there was some mistakes done and I said 'It's a good sign for a striker when a defender says he didn't see him!' - and then he just went away."
