Pep Guardiola issues Erling Haaland Champions League warning

Pep Guardiola claimed his squad cannot become too focused on Haaland in the coming months.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has warned his side cannot rely on Erling Haaland to fire them to Champions League glory.

Haaland is currently the leading goal-scorer in Premier League with 10 goals including two hattricks. The former Borussia Dortmund striker completed a £51.2m contract this summer.

The 22-year-old has hit the ground running in his first weeks at City and proved his worth.

The Cityzens will kick off their European campaign away at Sevilla in Group G tomorrow.

Man City boss claimed his squad cannot become too focused on Haaland in the coming months, despite his record of 23 Champions League goals in the last three seasons.

“If we rely all on Erling’s shoulders we don’t win the Champions League”, as per reports from BBC Sport.

“I understand everyone talks about Erling, but I have three, four, five new players, and it’s important they all settle.

“We don’t win just because of Erling and we don’t lose just because of Erling. He has a special quality and solves some problems.”

Sevilla have struggled so far in 2022/23, with just one point picked up from four league games.
