Thierry Henry’s Prediction Comes True As Erling Haaland’s ‘Weakness’ Gets Exposed During Manchester City Vs Real Madrid

Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland had a poor outing against Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. Despite an improvement from his display in the first leg, the player failed to get on the scoresheet despite his multiple attempts. The player looked off his game as manager Pep Guardiola was forced to take his star striker off the field for Julian Alvarez at the end of the 90 minutes with the game headed into extra-time.

Former Arsenal star Thierry Henry spoke of the striker’s game on his regular appearance on CBS Sports Golazo’s Champions League broadcast. The striker alongside fellow pundit Jamie Carragher displayed what the striker needed to improve in his game if he wanted to get an upper hand over the defenders. Henry claimed Haaland needed to position himself between the ball and the defender when he was receiving a pass to keep himself in control of the situation.


This comes weeks after Haaland’s poor display against Antonio Rudiger and William Saliba. Both central defenders had an advantage over the striker and kept him silent throughout the game, keeping his touches inside the box in single digits. His recent performances have raised questions over his quality with former United star Roy Keane even labeling the player as a striker fit for League Two! Talk about a massive statement.

Roy Keane not pleased with Erling Haaland

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has been very vocal about his displeasure with Manchester City’s Erling Haaland as of late. The striker’s performance has come under question with the player failing to replicate his goal-scoring exploits from last season. Keane believes the Norwegian is a liability to his teammates who have to go out of their way and feed the striker inside the box to get him to score.
