Chelsea’s goalkeeper has made bold claims regarding Man City’s new man – Erling Haaland. According to the Senegalese, Haaland is no different from Crystal Palace Christian Benteke.
“We have to focus on every striker. It’s not because it’s Erling Haaland. I look at Haaland like I look at, say, Benteke at Palace – it’s not that different between Crystal Palace and Manchester City. You have to be focused; he’s a striker, he can score,” said Eduardo Mendy.
Although Mendy has faced quite a number of top strikers including Karim Benzema, Harry Kane, Sergio Agüero, Cristiano Ronaldo and so on, He has never player against Haaland. These words from Mendy has amused quite a number of City fans and pundits.
Recall when Haaland was asked what team he wants to play against the most and he said Manchester United? You bet the goalkeeper he wants to face the most now is Edouard Mendy.
