Manchester City striker Erling Hollan (23, Norway), who set a record of 35 goals in a single season after one season of transfer to the English Premier League (EPL), gave his credit to his fans and colleagues.
On the 4th (Korean time), Hollan posted a poster commemorating his 35 goals in the EPL season on Instagram and wrote, “I am deeply grateful to everyone who has supported me so far.”
He said, “Without you, nothing would have happened,” and promised, “We will not stop here.”
Hollan’s post drew a lot of attention with 1.03 million likes and about 7,900 comments. In the comment window, the comment of Fabrizio Romano (30, Italy), a famous European soccer reporter, “A record only in one season, already a legend,” also stood out.
Earlier, on the 4th (Korean time), Holland succeeded in scoring in the home game against West Ham in the 34th round of the EPL 2022-23 season held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England, and achieved this record.
In this game, which Man City won 3-0, Hollan took over Jack Grealish (28, England)’s pass in the 25th minute of the second half and scored a goal with a sensational shot that passed the goalkeeper’s key to solidify the victory.
With this goal, Hollan scored 35 goals this season, breaking the EPL record for most goals in a single season. The previous record was 34 goals by Andy Cole (52) in 1994 and Alan Shearer (53, England) in 1995.
In particular, Hollan’s record-breaking achievement has a special meaning as it was achieved after one season of EPL transfer.
After the game, coach Pep Guardiola (52, Spain) and Man City players held a ‘Guard of Honor’ event for Halan. Coaches, staff, and players lined up on both sides of the aisle in the stadium applauded and congratulated Hollan as he passed by.
