Erling Haaland is most definitely the player that every one will be looking out for in Manchester City’s newly revamped side.
Unresolved concerns have been drawn as to how the Norwegian will adapt to Guardiola’s ever evolving side, and also the tedious nature of the Premier league.
Haaland however will focused on using his present fame to fuel his drive towards a possible replica, and even an improvement on his astounding goal record.
In a bid to further improve his current stats, the Norwegian has shared some insights on his plans to carry out the mandate.
“Life goes fast and suddenly my career is over. You saw that with my father – suddenly it’s over. So it’s about trying to enjoy every single minute of it because I’m really lucky to have this job and to be here [at ManCity].”
“I can understand the success in ManCity [even though] I’ve been here for a month or something. I see how hard the backroom staff are working, the physios, the trainers, how much they demand from you.”
Erling Haaland on Pep Guardiola:
“He’s demanding in his messages about what to do and about doing everything at 100%. It doesn’t matter if it’s a normal running exercise – do it at 100%, like on the pitch. Train as you play. Easy as that. Yeah, not less!”
Erling Haaland on ManCity and the #UCL:
“I don’t want to say too much about this! But yeah, I love the anthem and everything. It’s my favourite competition, a difficult competition. And, of course, my dream is to win the Champions League.”
“Yes, of course it’s pressure. I’m playing for the champions, the ones who won the PL, so there’s pressure, but in my head, it’s about trying to go out on the pitch smiling as much as I can and to try to enjoy the game.”
“My father was ten years in England, so he brought me up in an English banter kind of way. I was born in England, so we have the same funny things. Not taking yourself seriously is really important, to try to have fun with each other.”
