Speaking to William Hill, Erling Haaland said: “If I had to pick another player to have won Player of the Year, I would say my Norwegian friend, [Martin] Odegaard has had a really good season.
“There are also other teammates that could have easily won it because there’s a lot of players in the Manchester City team that have been outstanding this season. If you watch all of our games, you will see that Rodri has just been so solid throughout the whole season.
“I think sometimes he is a bit hidden because he is in midfield and he’s the one pulling everything together. I don’t want to say too many names, but maybe it could have been one of them.”
Odegaard has enjoyed a sensational season after helping Arsenal to what was an unexpected title challenge. The former Real Madrid playmaker has 15 goals and eight assists to his name in the Premier League this term.
