“We need another boot,” Newcastle United’s Callum Wilson call for the introduction of a ‘silver boot’ following Erling Haaland’s outrageous goal scoring start

“We need another boot,” Newcastle United’s Callum Wilson call for the introduction of a ‘silver boot’ following Erling Haaland’s outrageous goal scoring start

Following Erling Haaland’s incredible goal scoring start to life in the Premier League, Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson has jokingly called for the introduction of a “silver boot.”

The Manchester City forward has seemingly outperformed everyone’s expectations this season after joining from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, scoring 19 goals in 12 appearances.

Fourteen of those 19 goals have come in the Premier League, with Haaland currently leading the top goalscorer standings by seven goals over second-placed Harry Kane.

Newcastle and Wilson are also no strangers to the Norwegian’s goal-scoring exploits this season. The Magpies and Manchester City drew 3-3 at St James’ Park in August, with Haaland scoring City’s second goal of the afternoon.

It served as the catalyst for City to re-enter the game, as Pep Guardiola’s men scored again through Bernardo Silva minutes later to tie the game at 3-3.

As of now, it appears that the 22-year-old will end the season with the golden boot. Only a serious injury could deprive him of that honor.

Wilson believes the introduction of a’silver boot’ would make things easier for the rest of the Premier League’s strikers on the Footballer’s Football Podcast, which he co-hosts with West Ham United’s Michail Antonio.

“As strikers we’re competing against that so obviously for a striker you score the most goals and here’s a golden boot at the end of the season,” Wilson said. “That’s out of the picture, do you know what I mean? That’s gone, he [Haaland] needs his own boot and then we need another boot.

“We need a silver boot I think nowadays because we need a little something to make it fair.”
