, Dickov joked: “

Erling’s everything his dad wasn’t, he’s a goalscorer, right foot, left foot, quick, good-looking."

The former Scotland striker added:

“Alf-Inge came in and did a very good job for us.

"He was a box-to-box midfielder who loved to get a challenge in, chip in with the odd goal and was just a good character.

“Technically maybe he wasn’t the best but he made up for that in his desire to help out in games.”

Morrison, former City's captain said:

“Alf-Inge was a very private person, very professional and meticulous in how he carried himself.

“I’m sure those qualities will also be ingrained in his son; he was a super athlete able to get around the pitch and he had a very strong mentality that came from a very strong upbringing.

“Alf-Inge was great, he was a good lad as well and strong in the changing room."
