Erling Haaland will be a terrific purchase for Manchester City, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

On Tuesday, the Premier League winners confirmed Haaland’s transfer from Borussia Dortmund.


After agreeing to pay his £51 million release clause, the Norwegian striker is likely to join City.

Haaland has 85 goals in 88 games for Dortmund, and Klopp admits that with Haaland leading the attack, Pep Guardiola’s team will be a genuine handful.

“Good player. City wasn’t ever and will never be a team that wins games because of one player. They have a specific way to play and I think Erling will realise all of a sudden that he can score a lot of goals on the second post. He will love that.

“There will be other situations where he’s a real beast. He’s been injured a couple of times at Dortmund but he’s a real beast.

“Unfortunately, a really good signing,” Klopp told Sky Sports.
