Man Utd target Haaland: My total focus is on Liverpool

RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland says their Champions League clash with Liverpool is the biggest game of his career.

Haaland is one of Manchester United's top targets ahead of the January transfer window, but he insists his total focus is on Liverpool.

"I'm just focused on my job: playing football. I try to enjoy what I do every day, and go in with a clear mindset and enjoy the moment right now," the 19-year-old told reporters ahead of their Champions League clash with Liverpool on Tuesday night .

"My focus now is on Salzburg and me as a player. It is not hard at all. I am enjoying every day playing football.

"My father was a former player so he has been helping me but I also have a lot of friends who also help me in these situations.

"Doing what I am doing every week it is not easy but that's what I try to do. My father has been helping a lot.

"This is the biggest game of my career so far. Matches like this are what you dream of so I am enjoying it. I'm living the dream."
