Erling Haaland sends warning to this Premier League club

Erling Haaland Manchester City

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has sent a warning arch-rivals Manchester United.

Erling Haaland was unveiled as a Manchester City player on Sunday to hundreds of fans gathered outside Etihad Stadium.

And when asked which team he was looking forward to playing against the most, Haaland replied: “I don’t want to say the words, but… Manchester United.”

Manchester United tried signing the Norway international before he joined Borussia Dortmund in 2020.

Haaland was unveiled alongside Julian Alvarez, Stefan Ortega Moreno and Kalvin Phillips, although the former Leeds midfielder was unable to attend the event in person due to illness.

Meanwhile, Kalvin Phillips attracted interest from Premier League rival Manchester United but only wanted to leave Leeds United for Manchester City.

Phillips has now revealed why he snubbed Manchester United for Manchester City.

According to Phillips, he snubbed Manchester United for Manchester City because he wanted to play under the best coach in the world, Pep Guardiola.

“I am absolutely delighted to have joined Manchester City,” Phillips said. 

“City have again proved to the best team in the country with an amazing squad and a manager in Pep Guardiola who is rightly considered to be the finest in the world. 

“To be able to play under Pep and learn from him and his coaching staff as well as be part of a such a fantastic squad is a prospect that I am incredibly excited about. 

“City are a world-class Club with world-class staff and facilities and it’s a dream come true to have joined the Club. 

“Now I can’t wait to get started and to look to try and help the team to go on and achieve more success.”
