Pep Guardiola is finally allowed to talk about Erling Haaland. The day after Manchester City’s big transfer was announced, the manager opens up about the new striker. Even if he really doesn’t want to.

Haaland is not solely responsible: Weeks before the collaboration with his new star striker begins, Pep Guardiola tries to lower expectations of Erling Haaland. “We will never give him the responsibility of scoring the goals,” says the Catalan on “Sky Sports”. Guardiola believes that everyone is responsible for goals, not just strikers.

Preferably not a word: Guardiola, who has the best chance of winning the Premier League championship with ManCity after the 5-1 win at Wolverhampton two games before the end, would prefer not to talk about Haaland at all. “I’m answering because I have to and because I’m a polite man, but that’s an issue for next season.”

More goals! However, Guardiola manages to say about Haaland that he will “definitely help” Man City “score more goals”. In view of the fact that City paid a considerable 75 million euros and that Haaland scored 85 goals in 88 competitive games in two and a half BVB years, this is not a very daring thesis by the City coach.
