ANDY COLE “doesn’t give a f***” that Erling Haaland has broken his Premier League goal record.

The 51-year-old’s tally of 34 strikes in the 1993-94 season had only ever been equalled by Alan Shearer the following year… until Haaland came along.

The Manchester City striker has plundered 36 goals in 35 Premier League appearances this term to date, smashing Cole and Shearer’s record in fewer games.

Quizzed by the Mail over how it feels to have his record finally broken after 19 years, Cole said: “I couldn’t give a f***.

“I’m being honest. I am not anal in any way, shape or form about someone breaking goal-scoring records because records are set to be broken.

“Now, some people might be p***ed. But people say I must be disappointed. Why?

“Because someone has scored more goals than me? It’s taken 20 years for someone to get that close.

“Am I going to rock myself to sleep and think, Oh God, someone has broken my record?

“No, I’ll take my hat off to him. I’ll salute him. He’s done it in a team that creates chance after chance.

“At some stage, your record’s going to be broken.”

Cole scored his 34 goals in 40 appearances during the 1993-94 campaign – when the Prem still had a 42 game season.

Shearer, meanwhile, took the full 42 matches to bag his 34 goals during 1994-95.

Haaland’s remarkable campaign has seen him become the first star to ever win the Premier League’s Player and Young Player of the Year awards in the same season.

And he can add these to his Football Writer’s award earned earlier this month.

Speaking to the FWA upon receiving the gong, Haaland, 22, said: “I feel good, it’s a special moment.

“I expected to do good things but, to do this, I didn’t expect.”
