‘He was too used to Germany’ – Man City legend Sergio Aguero says Erling Haaland was ‘welcomed to the Prem’ by Van Dijk

Date:

SERGIO AGUERO reckons Erling Haaland got “too used to Germany” after Virgil Van dijk “welcomed” him to England on Saturday.

Virgil van Dijk gave Erling Haaland a torrid time on his debut in English football - and 'welcomed' him to the Premier League, Sergio Aguero said

But he was given a rough ride by Liverpool’s star defender, and missed a last-minute sitter, as the Reds beat Pep Guardiola’s men 3-1 in the Community Shield at Wembley.

And Aguero, who scored a record 260 times for City and has a statue at the Etihad, reckons goal-machine Haaland still has some acclimatising to do.

The City legend said: “He was too used to Germany.

“Haaland thought he was alone, then Van Dijk arrived and said ‘welcome to the Premier League’.”

Argentine Aguero, who retired in December because of a heart condition, also questions City’s decision to sell Raheem Sterling to Chelsea.

The Blues snapped up the England winger in a £47.5m deal.

But Aguero reckons it was too soon to let go of the man he played with at the Etihad for six years.

He added on his Twitch channel: “I don’t understand the sale of Sterling, there are times [City] make strange decisions.”

Sterling scored 131 goals and won 11 trophies in seven seasons for City.

Elsewhere, as exclusively revealed by SunSport on July 10, Phil Foden is closing in on a new £200,000-a-week long-term City deal.
