Haaland: I Can Withstand Premier League Pressure

Erling Haaland, a striker for Manchester City, claims he is in a good frame of mind to face the strain of the Premier League.

Haaland, who scored his first goal for the Citizens last weekend when they defeated Bayern Munich 1-0 in a preseason friendly, told TribalFootball that he is eagerly anticipating the start of the new campaign.

He added that he liked Pepe Guardiola’s “bit of laziness” and classified him as such.

“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 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 winning 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 in the Premier League.”
