Erling Haaland swears TWICE in first post since scoring twice on Manchester City debut

After a slightly disappointing start to life in England in a Community Shield loss to Liverpool, the 22-year-old was the difference maker as Manchester City got off to a winning start in defending their title.

While Pep Guardiola’s side didn’t start brilliantly, Haaland won first and then scored a penalty to open the scoring, displaying fantastic pace to force Alphonse Areola into a foul before calmly finishing on the spot.

In the second half, Kevin De Bruyne found his new team-mate with an accurate pass just as West Ham progressed in the game. Haaland, perhaps unsurprisingly, killed any chance of that with another cool finish.

Yet such his desire to keep scoring goals, the £51m signing had a rather gloomy view of the chance he missed for his hat-trick.

“It was a good start, nothing to say,” Haaland told Sky Sports.

“Good start.

“I could have done a hat-trick… Kinda shitty, but that’s the way it is… oh shit sorry.

“Also, it’s now almost 30 minutes since I scored the last goal, so I have to keep going.”
