Erling Haaland: Manchester City striker not concerned about settling in the Premier League after difficult Community Shield debut

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland says he is not concerned about settling in the Premier League following his summer move from Borussia Dortmund.

The Norwegian striker made his debut for Pep Guardiola’s side in Sunday’s Community Shield match against Liverpool at the King Power Stadium and endured a frustrating evening, missing a golden chance from six yards in an eventual 3-1 defeat.

As the reigning champions’ marquee signing ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, the 22-year-old carries a weight of expectation, yet he is relaxed about the possibility it may take time to adapt to a new league.

“We will see about settling in,” he said in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves.

“People can take time, people can come directly into it. We have to see, but I’m not concerned. That’s life as a footballer – you have to live with it.

“You are a kind of entertainer. You get judged every single week for what you do on the pitch and you have to deliver and do your best.

“For me as a striker, this is something I cannot stress about because if you think too much, you might end up doing things you don’t want to do.
