Pep Guardiola reveals plans for Erling Haaland during the World Cup

Pep Guardiola has been speaking about his plans for Erling Haaland during the World Cup.

In November, the Premier League will take a six-week break as the 2022 World Cup takes place in Qatar.

Most of the league’s biggest stars will head off with their nations to compete for football’s ultimate prize.

However, one man who will be staying at home during this period is the phenomenal Erling Haaland.

Guardiola announces Haaland World Cup plans

Norway’s failure to qualify for the World Cup means the 22-year-old will have ample time to prepare for the second half of the season.

The striker has already achieved a staggering 14 goals in his first 8 league appearances and is running away with the Golden Boot.

So it’s quite scary to think about the condition he will be in following a six-week break and then facing players who will have been through the rigours of an international tournament.

Guardiola explains what makes Haaland so extraordinary

Guardiola has lauded Haaland’s natural instincts as a striker and believes it is not possible to teach the way he plays.

Pep said: “It is the fact that he has an incredible instinct. He has an incredible sense as a striker he goes one second before the ball arrives.

“These types of players, how can a manager teach him it is impossible. He is a natural.

“He did it Norway, Austria, he smells it. Thank you for choosing us [Haaland] we are fortunate to have this talent.”
