Haaland’s Anger Against Wolves Was Supported By Best EPL Striker Ever

Erling Haaland’s anger when he was substituted during a comfortable victory against Wolves on Saturday has been supported by arguably the best striker in the history of the English Premier League, Alan Shearer.

The Norwegian striker was seen fuming when Pep Guardiola decided to take him off, probably to rest him or to give Julian Alvarez a playing time. The City manager made the changes towards the end of the match when Haaland has already scored four goals.

Discussing the incident, Alan Shearer, the leading goalscorer in the history of the Premier League, affirmed that the City striker’s behaviour was the best and insisted that he would have done the same thing had he been in a similar position.

“I loved it. Why shouldn’t he be fuming? “I would be fuming, absolutely raging,” Shearer told the Rest is Football podcast.

“You’re on four goals and you’ve got ten or 15 minutes left? I would be exactly the same as him.

He is on a high, flying, has had criticism, has four and is back in the groove. I loved it. I have no issue or problem with that at all. I get how he feels.”

Manchester City secure all the three points with a 5-1 victory. Four of the City goals were scored by Haaland, who netted a first-half hat-trick. Julian Alvarez, who came on for the Norwegian striker, scored the last goal and make sure that the visitors left the Etihad Stadium empty-handed.

However, in contrast to Alan Shearer’s viewpoint, Haaland faced media scrutiny regarding his conduct, with many deeming his anger unnecessary for a player of his stature, especially considering that plays in a team which have many players vying for playing opportunities.

Roy Keane Crisitises Haaland, Says He Behaves Like ‘Spoiled Brat’

The ex-Manchester United player, Roy Keane, who has emerged as one of the critics of the Manchester City striker, commented on the incident by stating that Haaland’s anger was uncalled for, portraying him as a ‘spoiled brat’.

“I think we saw Haaland yesterday brought off not too happy, behaving like a spoiled brat,” Keane said.

“I think when you have the spat as well with the manager and obviously your Star Man, it doesn’t help that results aren’t going your way. But because they win the game, he scores goals it’s almost forgotten about.”

Keane’s remark about Haaland’s behaviour was in addition to the numerous criticisms of the striker’s performances. The ex-football player described the Norwegian forward as a typical League Two player due to his impact during Manchester City 0-0 draw against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.
