Erling Haaland, a striker for Manchester City, expressed his desire to return to action.
Due to an ankle injury, the center-forward hasn’t played since December. As a result, he has missed five Premier League games and both of City’s FIFA Club World Cup matches.
As the Manchester United team enjoyed a great evening at the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai, Haaland used the chance to discuss his injury problem and how eager he is to return to the pitch.
Haaland is frantic to go back to City.
After winning the Globe Soccer Awards’ best men’s player for 2023 title, Haaland spoke about City and his future comeback to the pitch.
“I really enjoy being here, Manchester City is a fantastic club,” he remarked. I really want to recover from my injuries quickly because I’m growing tired of sitting around.
ADVANCED CITY STORIES
In a £51 million deal, City acquired the Norwegian from Borussia Dortmund during the summer transfer window of 2022.
After that, Haaland had a really good first season in Manchester, winning the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League in addition to scoring 52 goals in 53 games.
After that, the striker scored 19 goals in 22 games this season, so it’s understandable why he’s so eager to return to full fitness and support his side as they try to win back the titles they won the previous season.
The Norway international experienced a minor setback in his recuperation, but Pep Guardiola disclosed last weekend that he should be fully recovered by the end of the month.
Given how crucial Haaland’s goals have been since moving to the Etihad Stadium, it’s reasonable to suggest that his return to action will significantly increase Guardiola’s team’s chances of taking home additional titles.
