Pep Guardiola stated Erling Haaland is proving so prolific he’s creating issues for himself sooner or later.
The Manchester City striker took his tally to eight objectives in his final two video games together with his second successive hat-trick as Guardiola’s facet thumped Burnley 6-0 within the FA Cup.
Haaland, who had struck 5 instances within the 7-0 hammering of Leipzig on Tuesday, prolonged his membership file to 42 objectives in a season and Guardiola feels he’s growing expectations for different matches.
He stated: “This guy will have a problem in the future, every game he will be expected to score three or four goals and this is not going to happen.”
As he had finished towards Leipzig, Guardiola substituted Haaland with about half an hour remaining and he added: “It is incredible he scores goals only playing one hour. He is so effective, an incredible threat.”
On whether or not he has set a goal for the season, Haaland stated: “No, I have not. I’m a striker, I love to score goals, but my focus is not on scoring goals but on getting the chances. If I get the chances, there’s a good chance I’ll score.”
Burnley supervisor, and former City captain, Vincent Kompany in contrast Haaland to a few of the excellent gamers of his era and feels he’ll get higher once more.
He stated: “I have played against the greats, [Lionel] Messi, Ronaldinho, [Zinedine] Zidane, Cristiano Ronaldo: in the end they are part of a very special elite because I think even the very best find it very difficult to stop those guys because someone like Erling will keep finding a way. I think the goalscoring record in general puts you in a certain bracket, a certain category.
“He is an exciting player because what everybody sees is his goals and he is already very, very good at that, [with] his movement in the box and he has the athleticism and pace. He has a good feeling of where the ball is going to land in the box but then he is also in the right place for his development, he has the right coach with the right environment and I think he has the right mindset.”
