Haaland’s ‘generosity’ angers Guardiola, he told her in front of millions

In the Manchester City and Leeds United match on Saturday night, Europe’s top scorer Haaland decided to hand the penalty kick against Leeds to his German colleague Ilkay Gundogan, who had scored two goals and wanted to score the first hat-trick. in its history.

Gundogan missed the kick, after which Leeds United came back into the game with an immediate goal to make it 2-1, but Man City were able to preserve the win and lead the league.

After Gundogan’s shot, the camera showed an eerie snapshot of coach Guardiola shouting at Haaland with the line: ‘You should have shot it’, and he repeated it several times.

After a few minutes, Guardiola decided to remove Gundogan from the match, and he did not greet the player, as is customary for the Spanish coach, which supporters interpreted as a state of anger against the captain of the team because of his execution of the blow.

After the encounter, Guardiola said: “I understand that Haaland wanted to give his friend a chance to score a ‘hat-trick’, but when the score is 1-0 or 2-0 the kick has to be shot by the penalty specialist, which is Haaland.”

Gundogan confirmed that next time, “Erling Haaland will definitely take the kick.”
