Although Erling Haaland played unimpressively and missed a good opportunity in the 1-3 defeat to Liverpool in the English Super Cup, coach Pep Guardiola was still optimistic.
“Haaland had two or three chances in the first half, as well as one late in the game. He’s very powerful and will score the next time. That’s how football works. He should have had a goal as well, but it didn’t work out. because the ball had previously gone all the way, “Pep was quoted by Sky Sports as saying.
Haaland began the English Super Cup match between Manchester City and Liverpool on the night of July 30th. He didn’t do much when he took three shots, one of which was on target but was easily saved by goalkeeper Adrian.
Haaland was surprised at the end of the game when he missed a delicious opportunity from 5 meters away with the goal open. Goalkeeper Adrian threw himself all the way to save Phil Foden’s dangerous shot, and the ball found its way to Haaland’s position. The Norwegian striker, on the other hand, hit the crossbar.
“Haaland fought and moved a lot. It’s a good thing he can see the harsh realities of a new league and a new country. He did not score today, but he will in the future. He has extraordinary abilities and will succeed “Pep added
“Haaland has been here for only two weeks. I’m very satisfied with what I’ve seen. I’m not concerned. He will continue to make significant contributions to Manchester City “The Spaniard was upbeat.
Darwin Nunez, on the other hand, outperformed Haaland. He only played 30 minutes, but he earned a penalty for Liverpool and converted it to make the score 3-1.
“I believe Nunez plays well even when he is not scoring.” He has a penalty after a header (which hits Ruben Dias’ hand). He has a good chance as well, but Ederson saves it. Nunez is pleased, as are his teammates. “This is a really good sign,” coach Klopp said of his student.
“Everything is going swimmingly. Obviously, the situation will improve over time. We live in a world where everyone is judged on their appearance. It’s not good for anyone, but it keeps happening. We weren’t as fit in the first few preseason games as we are now. Nunez was brought on and had to chase down difficult passes. He was immediately exhausted. following the third pass And people judge him for such things “Klopp, the coach, added.
