The Liverpool manager has addressed the choice of the Etihad emblem by the Dortmund striker
Given the principle of agreement between Erling Haaland and Manchester City, for the signing of the Norwegian, Jurgen Klopp admits that the Citizens have chosen well, anticipates a high level of finishing and emphasizes physical capacity.
“Good player, but Manchester City, the way they play, has never been and will never be a team that wins games because of one specific player. Haaland will score a lot of goals at the far post, he won’t have just putting his foot on the ball likes that. When he’s fit he’s a real beast. Unfortunately, he’s a great signing for Manchester City,” the Liverpool manager said.
Manchester City confirmed last Tuesday an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of Erling Haaland from July, which “remains subject to the finalization of the terms in agreement with the player”.
The English press has reported that the 21-year-old striker will sign a five-year contract, with a salary of 25 million euros per year, and that Manchester City will pay Dormund the 75 million euros of the release clause.
