EPL: Guardiola names best striker in the world

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has hailed Erling Haaland as the best striker in the world.

Guardiola stated this during his press conference on Tuesday, where he fired back at Manchester United legend, Roy Keane, over his criticism of the player.

Following City’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Sunday, Keane claimed Haaland’s “general play” was “almost like a League Two player”.

The Norwegian had just 23 touches against the Gunners and fluffed a good chance in the second half.

But Guardiola said: “I do not agree with him, absolutely not.

“It’s like [if] I said he’s a manager for the second or third league. I don’t think so.

“He’s the best striker in the world and he helped us to win what we won last season and the reason why we don’t create many chances [against Arsenal] is not from Erling.”
