West Ham boss David Moyes is wary of the threat posed by new Manchester City striker Erling Haaland.

Erling Haaland joined Manchester City from German club Borussia Dortmund after scoring 86 goals in 89 appearances in all competitions.

Moyes said: “It feels as if we only played City two weeks ago. We went 2-0 up but drew 2-2. Here we go again.

“The problem is Haaland has a team around him — 10 other players and one of the world’s best managers on the touchline. 

“He’ll get over it quite quickly — being new to the English game — because he’s at a top football club.”

Manchester City beat Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Manchester United to the signing of Erling Haaland.

Meanwhile, Manchester City Director of Football Txiki Begiristain has explained why Manchester City made the move for Erling Haaland.

He told the club’s official website: “We have been monitoring Erling for several years now, so we are delighted to bring him here to Manchester City.

“He is a huge talent and has been one of the best strikers in Europe over the last few seasons.

“His goalscoring record is exceptional and his performances at Borussia Dortmund and in the Champions League in particular have proved he can succeed at the highest level.

“Erling has everything we want in a striker and we are certain he will excel in this squad and this system.

“His rise has been remarkable, but he is still only 21. His best years are ahead of him and we are confident he can get even better working with Pep.

“This is a very exciting signing for our club, and I am sure our fans will enjoy watching Erling perform in this team.”
