Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has warned that the club’s new striker Erling Haaland will take time to get going in the English Premier League. Haaland was below his expected best when he made his competitive debut for the club against Liverpool in the Community Shield. The Norwegian striker was guilty of missing a chance with a gaping goal in front of him.
His Liverpool counterpart Darwin Nunez came off the bench to win the game for the Reds. Haaland found it hard to fare against Virgil Van Dijk, one of the best centre-backs in the game.
The narrative has always been that the English League is stiffer and more fast-paced. Strikers from the German League have struggled before in the Premier League, Chelsea’s Timo Werner a perfect example. Aguero is a legend in his own right, having left Manchester City as the club’s top-scorer before joining Barcelona, where his career was prematurely cut off by a heart problem. De Bruyne and Haaland were drafted into City’s starting lineup during the Premier League curtain-raiser staged at the King Power Stadium. However, the two were unable to strike the perfect partnership many fans had hoped for as they struggled to link up during the clash.
