After a hard-fought 2-1 comeback at Villa Park, Liverpool FC manager Jürgen Klopp was asked about the lack of a European Cup having (very factual) and the petrostate’s abusive human rights (also true) Manchester City’s latest signing of coveted striker Erling Braut Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. He was under no illusion that this was something that would make his job much more difficult:
“A lot. Good player. City have never been and never will be a team that wins thanks to one player.”
“They have a specific way of playing, and I think Erling is going to suddenly realize that he’s going to score a lot of goals at the far post where he just puts his foot on it. He’s going to love that. is a real beast.”
“He got injured several times at Dortmund but when he’s fit he’s a real beast. Unfortunately, he’s a very good signing.
Big shrug. There are bigger things on the horizon before we turn our gaze to next season. Then an FA Cup final to win, a Premier League to chase and a seventh European Cup to hoist.
