Erling Holland is the star who created miracles in the English Premier League. The player who joined Manchester City from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund has given City a goal-scoring year.
Holland has scored 25 Premier League goals so far from 19 Premier League games.
But the fans criticize from many angles that Hallandipol is only a shadow of the performance he showed during his early days at City.
And in City’s 1-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Haaland failed to make a single touch or take a shot in the penalty box. Haaland has been very pale in some games before.
But now Jamie Carragher, who was a legendary player from Liverpool, has come forward saying that Haaland is not able to play regularly because he is at Manchester City.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher made his comments about Haaland clear.
“I feel that Haaland chose the wrong club when he was in great form.
You can laugh at me if you want to hear me out. But the truth is, City cannot fully use Haaland. It’s not Holland’s fault,’ said Jamie Carragher.
“Certainly City are a different team. I have no doubt about it. Haaland has scored 25 goals so far. I think the rest of the team scored as many goals. But they may have conceded more goals than that,’ he added.
“I felt that the style of play under Pep Guardiola did not suit Haaland. Haaland is a player who can play counter football. Not Guardiola’s style,’ said Jamie Carragher.
At the same time, Manchester City missed a crucial opportunity to reduce the lead with Arsenal in the Premier League points table in the game against Tottenham. With this, Man City are now five points behind Arsenal who are at the top of the league table.
Arsenal are in first place with 50 points from 20 games. City have 45 points from 21 games.
