Guardiola Eases Pressure on Haaland After 3-1 Win Over Young Boys

0 11

Guardiola reassures no pressure on Haaland despite a double in a hard-fought victory, as Manchester City triumphs 3-1 against Young Boys. Haaland’s first Champions League goals this season come after a recent scoreless run, following his remarkable 52-goal season.

Erling Haaland secured a double in the second half, leading the holders to a challenging 3-1 victory over Young Boys in their recent Champions League Group G match at Bern’s Wankdorf Stadium.

Pep Guardiola emphasized that Haaland shouldn’t feel pressured to score more goals, as Meschack Elia had previously equalized Manuel Akanji’s opener with an impressive strike, making the game quite competitive.

It’s worth noting that Haaland’s goals marked his first in six Champions League matches, with his recent goal against Brighton ending a three-game scoreless streak, a relative dry spell for a player who netted a total of 52 goals last season.

Guardiola said: “There is the impression after last season that he has to score seven goals every single game. That is impossible.

“But he is scoring a lot of goals and if people want him to fail because he doesn’t score 50 goals it doesn’t matter. He is always there.

“The second goal was really good and he had other chances. The important thing is to create them.

“Maybe in the right moment of the season he will be there, better than now, but he has already scored a lot of goals and we are really pleased.

“I’ve told him many times I don’t judge him for scoring goals, although I know he wants to score goals. He has the desire to improve and I don’t have doubts about that.”
