SERGIO AGUERO reckons Erling Haaland got “too used to Germany” after Virgil Van dijk “welcomed” him to England on Saturday.
City snapped up the superstar Norwegian in a £51.4million deal from Borussia Dortmund.
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.”
