Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland has suffered a recurrence of the ankle injury that has troubled him at the club this season. Norway’s team doctor recently confirmed this to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the slight twist in his ankle problem always leaves him vulnerable on the pitch, especially because it hurts a lot right away.
The doctor added that the striker will receive more treatment very soon, and then more details would be provided.
His words, “It was much of the same that happened against Bournemouth a week and a half ago. He has had it before too. He gets a slight twist in his ankle, where he is a bit vulnerable. It hurts a lot right away, and then it goes away pretty quickly. Then we’ll see tomorrow how he is then. Now he will receive some treatment, then there will be peace and rest and then we will see how he is tomorrow morning. We have already spoken to City. Erling has spoken to both City and [chief doctor] Mario [Pafundi] already.”
Norway coach added, “Under no circumstances have we received an enquiry from Pep Guardiola during my time with the national team. Erling is very keen to play in the national team.”
