Pep Guardiola satirically showed concern for striker Erling Haaland after his team’s 3:1 victory over Young Boys in the Champions League.
City are unbeaten in European competition in this current campaign. However it was a hard fought game against the Belgian outfit with help of Haaland’s brace.
The Norwegian striker scored his first Champions League goal in last six games. Haaland has scored 11 goals in 14 outings so far in this campaign.
After Wednesday’s Champions League night, City manager made a funny remark on Haaland’s goal scoring form. He told TNT Sports :-
“A lot, a lot. Honestly, I’m so concerned!
“The people expect him to score four goals every time. The people want him to fail. I am sorry but this guy will score goals all his life, with the chances he is an incredible threat.
“It is important to have the chances. The players need the ability to find the pass like Kevin de Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan. But he is going to score until the last day he plays football.
“It was an exceptional game our positional game was really good. The physicality of them led to a little bit more aggression against them in the one-on-one.
“One more game to qualify mathematically and then two more to finish first.”
