In the absence of Erling Braut Haaland's injury (23), it was another Norwegian who took responsibility. Now Pep Guardiola, 52, warns he will take a closer look at where his “gold” comes from.
The Manchester City manager agrees with Viaplay reporter Jan Åge Fjørtoft that there is “something Norwegian” around him at the moment.
– I have told Erling several times that I want to be invited to Oslo. I want to go to Norway. Not now, but in the spring or summer, says Pep Guardiola to Viaplay.
The reason for the question is that 20-year-old Oscar Pope pulled off three points in impressive fashion against Newcastle on Saturday night.
In other words, Erling Braut Haaland is not the only Norwegian product to bring success to the star manager.
“I'm sure Erling will organize a trip for me and my family,” Guardiola smiles.
Before Christmas, he also met with Norwegian chess star Magnus Carlsen in connection with an advertising assignment for Puma.
-I tried to play a little when I was young. It was my father who taught me that, but I realized I couldn't beat Magnus (Carlsen), so I retired, Guardiola joked.
– I thought it was really exciting. “It was a very nice meeting and I really appreciated it,” Magnus Carlsen said. TV 2.
