Erling Haaland faced criticism despite scoring twice against Young Boys, thereby helping Manchester City win 3-1. The Norwegian star missed many opportunities in Switzerland even though he scored 2 goals.
However, people at Man City still protect the player born in 2000, including Pep Guardiola. In addition, Rico Lewis also sided with Haaland after the 23-year-old assassin received the ‘Best Player of the Match’ award.
Specifically, Lewis expressed on TNT Sports:
“Haaland is like any other striker, you know? People will demand more of Haaland because he had an excellent season last year, but when he scored twice people thought he was starting worry”.
“Haaland scored 2 goals today. It’s a credit to Haaland and what he did last year“.
Last season, the 23-year-old scored a total of 52 goals in 53 matches and won the treble. This season, Haaland leads the Premier League top scorer race and scored 11 goals in all competitions.
Although there are doubts about Haaland’s performance, Man City’s assassin is still impressive.
