Guardiola is a bit crazy – Haaland
Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland, has said manager Pep Guardiola “is a bit crazy”.
Haaland was speaking to the media after he made his debut for the Premier League champions.
The Norwegian netted the only goal as City beat Bayern Munich in a pre-season friendly on Sunday.
He had been left out of the opening tour game against Club America to build his fitness.
“It was a good feeling to get started again after six weeks without football,” Haaland said.
“I’ve been watching a lot of City games over the last few years and they’ve been without a striker, so, of course, I’ve been seeing myself in these situations." I’m not surprised I scored.
“It’s good. I have to say the first time I won against Bayern, it was about time after seven losses in a row.
“To beat Bayern feels good and the quality is good." It was a real test before Liverpool in a week.
“I don’t want to speak too much about Dortmund, but Guardiola is a bit crazy – and I like that."
“I’ve been training well and I’m ready for what is next.”
