Pep Guardiola hails Haaland amid transfer links

Pep Guardiola heaps praise on Erling Haaland ahead of the Dortmund clash.

The 20-year old Norwegian has become one of the hottest properties in Europe after becoming the youngest player to reach 20 career goals in the Champions League.

He has now scored 33 goals in 32 games for Dortmund this season and many top European clubs are linked with a move for the young forward.

Haaland is believed to be on the radar for a potential replacement for Sergio Aguero who’s leaving Etihad when his contract expires in the summer.

Guardiola is well aware of Haaland’s qualities as they prepare to welcome Dortmund to the Etihad for the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Tuesday.

“He’s exceptional for his age. The numbers speak for themselves,” Guardiola told reporters on Monday.

“He can score right, left, counter attacks, in the box, headers. He’s a fantastic striker, everyone knows it.

“He’s only 20. To score that many goals at this age, it’s not easy to find a player like that.

“A blind guy can realise he’s a good striker, it’s not necessary to be a manager.”
