Man City worried about Haaland before World Cup break: "Not perfect yet"

Pep Guardiola has revealed that Erling Haaland is still not completely fit after his foot injury. It is still open whether the striker can play in the last games of the year.

After being out for a short time due to a foot injury, Erling Haaland made a perfect comeback last weekend. The ex-Dortmunder came on as a late substitute in City's game against Fulham and scored the 2-1 winner with a last-minute penalty.

But you are not too euphoric at the Etihad Stadium - because the injury is still plaguing Haaland. "He's not at 100% - she [the injury] is still not perfect," Guardiola said on Tuesday. It remains to be seen whether Haaland will play against Chelsea (EFL Cup) on Wednesday or against Brentford (Premier League) on Saturday, the ManCity coach continued.

"It's important that the bone didn't break - no damage was done," said Guardiola. "It's just the tapes are a bit damaged, so it's not perfect yet. But in a week, in ten days, anything can happen. It can change."

It will be exciting to see how things continue with Haaland after the last game before the World Cup break. Because even though Norway missed the tournament in Qatar, the Scandinavians still have two international matches on their schedule for mid-November. From City's point of view, it would of course not be desirable if Haaland were to work there, but Guardiola made it clear that they did not want to ban him. "If he feels good, he will play for the national team. That's so important for the players. I never block players when they are fit to play for the national team."
