Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola urges Erling Haaland to relax

Pep Guardiola has told Erling Haaland to focus more on getting his body language right than scoring goals. The Manchester City manager admitted to being concerned about the prolific Norwegian’s demeanour since his return to action following a two-month lay-off with a foot injury. Guardiola feels the striker has been preoccupied with adding to his remarkable goal tally and wants him to relax more. He thinks Saturday’s victory over Everton was a good example, when Haaland had a quiet first half before netting twice late on to secure a 2-0 success.
