Haaland’s father comments
The 22-year-old was called up by the Norway national team. However, he had to withdraw his name due to a groin problem.
He is present there in the hospital in Barcelona. Manchester City have a partnership with a hospital in Barcelona in order to get the full treatment. Even the doctor of the Norway national team has advised that full proper treatment will be the best for him.
Haaland’s form is in the top flight. He is just scoring more and more goals in his debut season with City. He has scored 44 goals and has also got 6 assists in his name over all competitions. Furthermore, he has six hattricks in his name in the City shirt.
However, Haaland’s fitness is quite uncertain and is in touch and go situation. How much he will get before their next clash against Liverpool on April 1 is also uncertain.
Alfie Haaland says,
“You can’t just go two weeks without training and then jump right into a fight. There must be a progression there. They can gamble on it but it all depends on how he reacts to the treatment in the next few days. He needs a lot of care and knuckling. There are many sprints and lot to move”.
City will be hoping that Haaland returns to full fitness as soon as possible. Given the magnitude of the upcoming fixtures in April, they will really need him.
In Premier League, they will be facing Liverpool and Arsenal. FA Cup and UEFA Champions League will also be their priority. They will face Sheffield United in the last four of the FA Cup. In the Champions League, they will be facing Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.
