Manchester City forward Erling Haaland has been out of the football field for over a month. However, with his debut in the Carabao Cup against Liverpool, he made it clear who the master of debut is.
As the footballer came back in action, it took him not more than 10 minutes to kick the ball into the net. His action makes a statement to his boss Pep Guardiola and to the world, that he is not an ordinary player.
Pep Guardiola feels that Manchester City players who played in the World Cup 2022, Qatar were in a much better condition as compared to others who didn’t. While Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe battled it out for the Golden boot award in the finals, Erling Haaland was on standby mode, waiting for the club football to get on track.
As Norway was out of the competition for qualifying for the International event in Qatar, Erling Haaland had enough time to take a break from competitive football. He made his comeback after more than a month in the Carabao Cup quarterfinal vs Liverpool.
Manchester City Coach Guardiola’s concern over Erling Haaland’s recovery
Coach Pep Guardiola wanted his star player to recover properly from the previous injury. He was worried that the 22-year-old would require some time to get back to his complete potential.
As the match unfolded, it became evident that the coach had nothing to worry about. At almost the 10th minute, Erling went across Joe Gomez to smoothly sail the ball into the net with a ‘Kevin De Bruyne’ cross.
