Man City's Erling Haaland will be sidelined until end of January

Haaland is yet to resume full training with his Man City teammates.

Man City manager Pep Guardiola has given an update on the fitness of Erling Haaland who is recovering from the injury. The Norway international is likely to be out until the end of January.

The Norway international last played for Man City against Aston Villa on December 6. He even missed out the Club World Cup campaign.

Haaland is recovering from a foot injury and he was supposed to return for the early stages of the new year. He is yet to resume full training with his Man City teammates.

While talking ahead of Saturday’s clash with Newcastle United, Guardiola explained that Haaland will be out for this Premier League clash. He will work on his recovery in the club’s warm-weather training camp in Abu Dhabi.

Man City boss Guardiola said during the press conference, “Yes, [he has had] a little bit of disturbing problems in his feet.

“It’s fine but the doctors decided to stop for one week and maybe restart in Abu Dhabi. Hopefully, at the end of this month he’ll be ready.

“It was a little bit more than we expected in the beginning. It’s the bone. It needs time. With every injury you can do whatever you want but it’s a question of time.”

The 23-year-old striker has scored 19 goals in 22 competitive appearances this season. Pep also added, “We miss Erling a lot. We need him. Hopefully, he can come back and play the last four or five months without a problem. When you are injured at end of November, you miss a lot of games. It’s the toughest period.”
