Erling Haaland details his special relationship with Pep Guardiola

Erling Haaland is undoubtedly one of Manchester City’s best reinforcements in recent times. The Norwegian is the offensive scoring piece that Pep Guardiola desperately needs so that his team can finally be complete.

It was precisely this job with the Spanish coach that made the forward continue to show the great numbers he left behind at Borussia Dortmund. He almost averaged a goal per game in England, making him one of the most effective attackers in the world.

Speaking to L’Equipe, the Norwegian detailed what this period was like with Pep as coach, where he stated that “we have a very good relationship. Of course, he is very demanding in his work, he is very direct and honest in his said, but this is his way of managing. To grow and improve, it is better to have the whole truth directly.”

“On the first day at Burnley you can see it, but I appreciate it because it shows that he is fully committed and motivated,” he added.

In that sense, the forward says that “it is not always pleasant, but at the same time it confronts you with the truth and I know that its goal is to make you a better player. But be- be careful, that’s what happens at work. Lots of fun out there, really. There are lots of smiles, and the proof is how the group has lived over the years.

“I made a lot of progress under Pep Guardiola, I see it every day, and I think the results prove it. For my part, I think I contributed to the ability to play more directly when needed, which allowed us to get out of the pressure when we need it,” he concluded.

How many goals did Erling Haaland score for Manchester City?

The Norwegian striker has 58 goals (plus ten assists) in 59 games in a City shirt. In the citizen squad he won Premier League, FA Cup, European Super Cup and Champions League.

When will City play again?

Manchester City will face West Ham on the 5th of the 2023-24 Premier League, scheduled for Saturday, September 16 (11:00 Chile time) at the Olympic Stadium in London.
