Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has come to speak on Manchester City’s latest signing Erling Haaland, the German side the Norway star will be a good signing for Manchester City. The Premier League champions confirmed Haaland’s arrival from Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday and he is set to join City after they agreed to pay his £51million release clause.
Jurgen Klopp Says Haaland is a Beast
So far, Haaland has scored 85 goals in 88 appearances for German Bundesliga side Dortmund and Klopp admitted that Pep Guardiola’s side is going to be a real handful with the attacker leading the line.
According to Jurgen Klopp, he said: “Good player. The city wasn’t ever and will never be a team that wins games because of one player. They have a specific way to play and I think Erling will realize all of a sudden that he can score a lot of goals on the second post. He will love that.” He also said: “There will be other situations where he’s a real beast. He’s been injured a couple of times at Dortmund but he’s a real beast.”
The Liverpool head coach admitted that unfortunately, Haaland will have to play against his side. Haaland was a major target for many European clubs, the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, and new English Premier League money power Newcastle United all wanted to sign the player but Manchester City was the club he finally chose.
