Erling Haaland scored 25 goals in the Premier League (Reuters)
In a new defeat for Manchester City outside their stadium (the third in a row), Erling Haaland made headlines again but not because of his scoring quality but quite the opposite. The Norwegian, who has 25 goals in the Premier League, did not kick on goal in the 90 minutes of the duel against Tottenham on matchday 22 of the tournament.

A detail that was questioned in the different sports analyzes of the weekend. Among them, it was the former Liverpool Jamie Carragher who launched a phrase that resonated in the old continent: “Haaland may have chosen the wrong club,” he considered on Sky Sports.
Despite being the top scorer of the season with eight goals more than his immediate rival Harry Kane, the former soccer player and now a panelist on the sports program, referred to the fact that his style of play does not go hand in hand with the idea proposed by Pep Guardiola in each presentation.

“I know that doesn’t happen that often with the way City play. Haaland comes from a league, that of Borussia Dortmund, in which you play on the counterattack, from end to end, and you could see that devilish speed. Here it is not seen. I may have chosen the wrong club to get the best out of it,” he explained.

The Norwegian has scored 31 goals so far this season, excellent numbers for an elite striker, however Carragher believes the footballer has much more talent to exploit. “Now we don’t see everything from Haaland. You can say that Manchester City is a different team”, he remarked, making the comparison with Borussia Dortmund’s style of play.
“He has scored 25 goals in the Premier League. Manchester City as a team have scored the same number of goals, but they have conceded more and are much easier to counterattack, ”he argued.

In turn, the 45-year-old commentator, who had his brushes with Cristiano Ronaldo while he was a member of Manchester United, maintained that “we have only seen 60% of Haaland. They are a different team and an inferior team with Haaland in it, but again it’s not his fault.”

“City, as a team, will not play end-to-end football. It’s not Guardiola’s style and his players don’t have the energy, power or pace to play from end to end. Haaland will continue scoring goals. But we are not seeing everything that this player can do because of the team he has gone to, ”he said.
