EPL: You’re an exceptional footballer – Klopp hails Man City star

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has hailed Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland, as an exceptional footballer.

Klopp said Haaland has strengthened Pep Guardiola’s side since arriving at Etihad Stadium earlier this summer.

Haaland joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund for an initial fee of £51 million.

The 22-year-old attacker has been a revelation for Man City this season.

The Norwegian has netted a whopping 12 goals and contributed one assist in eight matches across all competitions for the Premier League champions.

Speaking to Sport 1, Klopp said: “Haaland is an exceptional footballer and of course, they have become stronger because of him. You just have to know – Pep [Guardiola] sees this just as much as I do – that the team has to be reshuffled from time to time. We also gained players and lost one [Sadio Mane], who almost always played. And that will take time.”

He added, “That applies to City as well as to us. But when you see how City play, how the balls come into the penalty area, and how Erling stays in the right spaces, it’s hard to avoid scoring goals. Very many even. But City have also given up a lot of players and are also in transition, even more than we are.”
