Erling Haaland’s father offers an injury update on the Manchester City star ahead of the Liverpool clash.

Alfie Haaland has provided an update on his son’s condition as Manchester City sweat over the forward ahead of their Premier League clash with Liverpool on April 1.

According to his father Alfie, Manchester City striker Erling Haaland is “hit and run” to meet Liverpool after the international break.

The 22-year-old withdrew from Norway’s squad for Euro 2024 qualifiers against Spain and Georgia earlier this week with a groin strain. Haaland had scored eight goals in two games before the international break, but was injured in the 6-0 win over Burnley in the FA Cup quarter-final.

There are now some doubts as to whether Haaland will return to face Jurgen Klopp’s Reds at the Etihad Stadium on April 1. The former Borussia Dortmund is recovering from the club’s physiotherapist in Marbella, where he often goes for short breaks and beyond. his vacation. Alfie Haaland has spoken out about his son’s condition and his move to Spain as City consider whether to play Haaland against Liverpool. However, he also revealed that Haaland “needs a lot of treatment”, suggesting the injury could be worse than initially feared.

“Manchester City have a partnership with a hospital in Barcelona, ​​so he was there for further checks and treatment,” Alfie told Norwegian TV 2 Sport, as reported by the Times.

“Now he’s here [Marbella] with the club physio for a few days. Firstly I’m not a doctor and secondly I think it’s a hit and run thing, yes. You can’t just go two weeks without working out and then immediately jump into a fight. There has to be progress on that.

“They can bet on it, but if he doesn’t train well with the team he won’t play. It’s about how he will respond to treatment in the next few days. He needs a lot of treatment.”

Any injury to Haaland will be a major blow to City and their chances of retaining the Premier League trophy. The Norwegian frontman has been outstanding this season, scoring an impressive 42 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions.

No player has scored more in Europe’s top five divisions and is on course to break even more records in both the Premier League and Champions League by the end of the season. If Haaland doesn’t return for Liverpool, Guardiola will hope he is ready to face Southampton and then Bayern Munich.

City face the German giants in the Champions League quarter-final on 11 April, before returning a week later. It is the only major trophy Guardiola has not won at the Etihad and he will be more motivated than ever to win that honor this season. Join the conversation
