Claims have been made that Erling Haaland does not fit in with Manchester City.
British ‘Talk Sports’ said on the 9th (Korean time), “Holland cannot develop Man City from a long-term perspective, and manager Pep Guardiola has never wanted to sign him. This is the idea of Didi Harman, who has played for Man City.” Reported.
Haaland joined Manchester City last summer. Haaland, now 22, is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world despite his young age. He stood out on the stage of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) while in Salzburg (Austria), and moved to Dortmund in January 2020 and entered the big league.
He showed off his amazing scoring sense at Dortmund. Even after digesting only the second half of his first season, he settled smoothly by scoring 13 goals in 15 German Bundesliga matches. He was responsible for Dortmund’s front line for a total of two and a half seasons, scoring 86 goals in 89 matches in his career. And ahead of this season, after giving birth to a lot of transfer rumors, he headed to Man City.
He is quickly becoming one of the best players in the English Premier League (EPL) as well. He is the leading scorer so far he has scored 25 goals in 20 league appearances. He surpassed the 23 goals of Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah, who took the EPL top scorer last season. At the current pace, more than 30 goals are possible.
However, in the recent game against Tottenham Hotspur, he left a regret. Holland started in the 22nd round of the EPL between Manchester City and Tottenham on the 6th. However, during the 90 minutes he played, Holland’s influence was minimal. It can’t be entirely blamed on Haaland, but he didn’t touch the ball in the penalty box once throughout the game. 스포츠토토
In line with this, France’s ‘DAZN’ said, “Haland is currently scoring 25 goals in the league. Man City, who owns him, has scored 53 points in 21 games so far. However, Man City scored 53 points in the same period last season. Haaland has many goals. , but Manchester City’s total score did not increase.”
In fact, Manchester City scored 53 points in 21 league games last season. At the time, they were leading the league, but now they are second. As of the current league standard, Haaland scores 25 goals, followed by Phil Foden (7 goals), Julian Alvarez, and Riyad Mahrez (more than 4 goals). It differs slightly from Holland.
Here, Harman told ‘Talk Sports’, “Haland’s strengths are the opposite of Manchester City’s strengths right now. Personally, Haaland is not a player who suits Manchester City. I do not think he will improve Manchester City in the long term. It’s not my preferred type, so when Haaland came to Manchester City, I was very surprised.”
