Pep Guardiola hits back at Roy Keane after Erling Haaland ‘League 2’ comments

Pep Guardiola has responded to comments made by Roy Keane on Man City striker Erling Haaland.

Former Man Utd star and current Sky Sports pundit, Keane, said that Erling Haaland played like a ‘League 2’ player following Man City’s dismal 0-0 draw against Arsenal on Sunday.

Keane said of Haaland: “The levels of his general play is so poor, and not just today. His general play for such a player, it is so poor, I think he has to improve that, he’s almost like a League Two player.”

Of course, in typical Pep fashion, his response was astute and calculated, Pep said he “Does not agree with him (Keane), absolutely not!“.

He also added: “Haaland is the best striker in the world”.

Erling Haaland scored 52 goals in all competitions last season and has 29 this season.
