Haaland: “My job is to score goals, not touch the ball all the time”

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland spoke about his playing style.

The Norwegian is often criticized for the low involvement of the “citizens” in the game, which, according to the forward himself, is not very correct.

“There was always discussion about how often I should touch the ball. Nobody talks about it when I score, but as soon as I don't score, people immediately start mentioning the number of touches I have. It's part of life. I can't control what they say about me.

My job is clearly not to manage the game like Rodri does. I have to be in the penalty area and finish attacks. You can play without touching the ball. Not only touches are important, but also movement, intelligence, and understanding of the game. I know my role in the team,” City Xtra quotes Haaland.
