Erling Haaland: the last perfect missing piece for Man City to conquer the Champions League title?

After the departure of the legend Segio Aguero after the 2021-22 season, Manchester City and their manager, Pep Guadiola, have always had a thirst for a top-class striker who can scored plenty of goals, bringing winning to the team. However, with the appearance of Erling Haaland, who is currently considered one of the two best players in the world, alongside Mbappe, this nerve-racking issue will be resolved.

What has Haaland achieved when playing for Borussia Dortmund?

  Despite the fact that he is just 22 years old, Halland has gained a lot of reputations for his incredible achievements. In Borussia Dortmund’s shirt, the Norwegian strikers made scoring goals as easy as a piece of cake. He usually got the better of Bundesliga and Champion League’s Defenders to score tremendous goals. To be specific, in just 89 matches for Dortmund, he scored incredible 86 goals and provided 23 assists in all competitions since his first debut on January 18, 2020. In terms of trophies, he won the German Cup in the 2020-2021 season with BVB.

Will Haaland be able to fill Sergio Aguero’s Boots?

  What El Kun did for Manchester City is incredibly unbelievable. Aguero became the club’s all-time top goal-scorers with 257 goals in 284 games for City, winning five Premier league titles, an FA cup, and six league cup in a 10-year period. In The Citizen’s mind, he is a real legend. Therefore, the pressure for the Norwegian striker will be enormous. But contrary to that belief, the new man City forward insisted that he didn’t feel any any pressure and would accept challenges: “Like I have been doing my whole career, try to enjoy every single minute, every moment, try not to think too much. Overthinking is not a good thing for every human being. I just try to relax when I can and work hard.”

  Since Aguero left the club, scoring has caused sleepless nights for Pep Guadiola. Even though the squad still have scored a lot of goals and produced good attacking displays, in some important games, City still lacked a quality striker who could score crucial goals to seal victories in some important games. The most quintessential example of this problem would be the match against Real Madrid in the UCL semi-final last season. Numerous opportunities were created, but many of them were missed. Consequently, they suffered a humiliating 6-5 defeat in the extra time after the two-leg tie.

  Will Haaland be the answer to this? Yes and no, because Guadiola has consistently adhered to the play concept, which emphasizes high possession and high pressing, throughout his career. Therefore, Haaland has to operate well with his new teammates to adapt to his tactical philosophy. However, it is not fortuitous that he is regarded as one of the most sought-after strikers in the world. The Norwegian forward has good physicality to thrive in the Premier League. He is also versatile when usually working really hard off the ball and dropping deep to collect the ball. These qualities are what Pep is looking for and he will definitely appreciate what Haaland has offer.
