Pep Guardiola's explains Haaland's flying start at Etihad

Erling Haaland has already scored 11 goals in the Premier League.

The Norwegian forward has arrived at the Etihad this summer and quickly established his name in the prestigious league.

In total, he has scored 14 goals in all competitions and is currently leading the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

He will get to play his first Manchester derby this weekend and is expected to make a statement at the Etihad.

Manager Pep Guardiola explains that physios deserve a lot of credit for their work with the Norwegian forward.

“Everyone is important but I’ve always said to the club that the most important department in the backroom staff is the physios,” Guardiola said. “They take care of the legs.

“Erling struggled a lot in Dortmund last season with injuries and arrived here with little problems after a small surgery in the summer.

“He started to work here with (physiotherapist) Mario (Pafundi) and the other guys and thanks to them – and of course his work ethic – he can play regularly now. Last season it was not possible.

“When the players can play most of the time it’s thanks to the physios.”
