The 22-year-old received unanimous honors from the entire football world after his brilliant start to the season, and now everyone is wondering if the Norwegian striker will continue to score and improve in the upcoming matches.
Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, of course, succeeded in recognizing Braut Haaland’s success in Manchester City’s light blue kit.
It depends on Guardiola’s ego
However, the Milan star is among those perhaps few who are unsure whether Braut Haaland will develop into a better striker under Pep Guardiola.
Can Guardiola make Haaland better? It depends on Guardiola’s ego. Whether or not Guardiola allows Haaland to become older than him. Because he never allowed me to be bigger than him. Zlatan Ibrahimovic says in an interview with the French, not only me, but many, many other people Channel +Submitted by Swedish football channel.
As you know, Pep Guardiola coached Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Barcelona in the 2009/10 season. The two did not agree, and the Swede left Camp Nou the following year. In his autobiography “I’m Zlatan” The 41-year-old revealed that he berated Guardiola several times during his time at Barcelona, accusing the coach of “lack of balls”.

Erling Braut Haaland has stated in several interviews that Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of his role models and idols in the field.
The admiration is mutual.
– If you like Haaland? Yes pretty much. I mean he’s a very smart player. Ibrahimovic says he doesn’t do things on the pitch that he doesn’t have the skills to do.
He never goes down the field to catch the ball and plays forward. He waits in front of the target and then kills everyone. It reminds me of players like Filippo Inzaghi, David Trezeguet and Christian Vieri. The Swedish star says it’s a new version of her.
Braut Haaland missed Manchester City’s last two matches, against Leicester in the English Premier League and Seville in the Champions League, due to injuries and illness. The scorer is expected to return to play when Manchester City face Fulham at the Etihad Stadium next Saturday.
