In response to those who questioned Haaland after his debut against Jurgen Klopp's team, Guardiola has now retaliated.


I am aware of how well-trained and composed he was this week in the face of a lot of criticism "Guardiola stated.

"But I admired the way he used the ball to take the penalty. He is straightforward and will hit one of his teammates in the face if they try to seize his ball. I'm rather certain about that " He struggled to adjust to the Premier League a week ago. He is now playing with the best, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Alan Shearer, and Thierry Henry.

"I'm hoping he'll stick around for this period and beyond. We want all of the new men to feel at home in the community and on the squad. and exert a bit more pressure on him.

He has great talent and puts up good stats, but we'd like to improve his performance by giving him one more thing to work on. Not simply a man who scores goals, which is crucial, but we want to do everything we can to help him improve as a player.
