West Ham reject joins Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski in elite Champions League group

West Ham reject joins Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski in elite Champions League group

Haller scores again

Shunned at West Ham following a 45 million pound move from Eintracht Frankfurt, French striker Sebastien Haller has found a new lease of life with Erik ten Hag at Ajax.

The forward joined the Amsterdam outfit in January of 2020, but was accidentally left off the squad registration for European football, meaning that this season marked his first taste of Champions League action.

And it is safe to say that he is making up for lost time. His latest strike, to bring his side level away to Besiktas, means that he has now bagged 8 goals in just five Champions League games this season, as well as scoring 9 goals in 13 Eredivisie appearances.

And, in doing so, the striker twice wrote his name into the history books of the Champions League.

Haller sets pair of records

As per Opta, Haller has become just the fourth player to score in each of his first five appearances in the competition, and joins some very illustrious company.

Alessandro Del Piero, Diego Costa and the Wunderkind Erling Haaland are the only players that can match this feat.

*Note: Haller has since doubled his tally, and gone past Erling Haaland’s record in the process.

Additionally, he, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski, have set a new Champions League record.

For the first time in the competition’s history, three players have managed to net in their first five Champions League games of the season.

Not bad company for a West Ham reject.
