Julian Alvarez геvеals the only thing he and Haaland cannot agree on

Julian Alvarez detailed what it’s like to play alongside Manchester City strike partner Erling Haaland, but rеvealed one disagreement they do have.




In the summer, Alvarez and Haaland respectively transferred from Borussia Dortmund and River Plate to Manchester City. The 23-year-old World Cup champion was full of admiration for his Norwegian teammate beyond just football terms, but took issue with Haaland’s apparent affinity to Boca Juniors, River Plate’s bitter rivals. The two have already contributed to 51 goals across all competitions.


WHAT THEY SAID: “Beyond what we all know football-wise, he [Haaland] is a good guy,” Alvarez said in an interview with TyC Sports . “He helps me, we talk and from the outside I try to watch him to learn. Since I arrived he used to tell me that he was a Boca fan and talked to me about La Bombonera. I think he was with Leonardo Balerdi at Borussia Dortmund and that was a bit of an influence. Let’s see if we can change it little by little, it’s going to be difficult but we’re going to try.”


THE BIGGER PICTURE: While Haaland has got the majority of the plaudits for his record-breaking start to life in England, Alvarez has popped up with some important performances for Guardiola’s side, particularly as an impact substitute late on. Despite his last FA Cup outing being one to forget, the Argentina international will be hoping to feature for City in their Champions League return fixture against RB Leipzig, having been an unused substitute in a 1-1 draw in the first leg.



WHAT WILL ALVAREZ DO NEXT? The City will have to wait for that opportunity however, as Guardiola’s team are next in action on Saturday, when they travel to Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace.

Haaland generated excitement when he collided with a defender for Newcastle

Several spectators were intrigued by the incident on March 4 when Erling Haaland nearly raced 40 meters home to agitate Dan Burn during Man City’s Premier League victory against Newcastle.


When Jack Grealish received the ball in his own half in the 73rd minute, Burn fouled him from behind, causing him to fall to the ground in agony. Newcastle’s left-back used foul language because he believed Grealish was cheating, which led to arguments between players on both sides.
