Even Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland, according to Gabby Agbonlahor, would struggle to score goals at Manchester United.
The controversial pundit made this assertion to talkSPORT as an indictment of United’s attack rather than a condemnation of the £51 million (Sky Sports) guy.
Gabby Agbonlahor, on the other hand, believes Erling Haaland will be a disappointment at Manchester United.
Erling Haaland would flunk at Manchester United, according to Gabby Agbonlahor. Branded as a ‘great threat’ by Pep Guardiola, the Norwegian striker now has 11 goals in all competitions and is the Premier League’s leading scorer with nine goals in nine games.
Last season, Haaland scored 52 goals in 53 games while guiding Manchester City to a historic treble.
Gabby Agbonlahor, on the other hand, gave a brief assessment on Erling Haaland’s chances in a Manchester United shirt.
“Haaland wouldn’t score in this Man United team in the Premier League” , he was quoted as saying.
“They starve him [Rasmus Hojlund] of service, Antony gets the ball, he cuts inside, doesn’t put crosses in, [Marcus] Rashford does the same on the left-hand side, no one puts crosses in for him!”
Erling Haaland can score from wherever.
One may appreciate Gabby Agbonlahor’s argument as Manchester United struggle to create chances, but the Leeds-born goalscorer is truly one of a kind.
Whether at RB Salzburg, Borussia Dortmund, or Manchester City, the 23-year-old has repeatedly demonstrated that he was destined to score goals.
In truth, Haaland would have a ball in a transition-based side like United, just as he did at Dortmund.
The triple winner would just raise the Red Devils’ offensive and allow Erik ten Hag to construct the world’s scariest attack on the break.
While most Premier League strikers would be out of work at Old Trafford, Erling Haaland would still find a way to be productive due to his physical profile and finishing ability.
