Hold Me Responsible For Haaland Slump In Form –Guardiola

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that he will take responsibility of Erling poor goal scoring form in the team.

Despite netting 27 goals in all competitions since joining from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, the Norwegian international has failed to score in his last three outings and Guardiola says the supply to the striker needs to improve.

“We have our game, we have our principles but the way we played in last two games didn’t help Erling to score,” Guardiola said.

“In the build-up you can be wider, but in the final third you have to have players in the middle. If Erling is not there we are not going to score goals.

“In the past we have always had incredible movements in the final third, in the small spaces. Now, in the last two games, we haven’t had it. I would say it was my fault. I didn’t make them understand the way we have to attack.

“We need runners, not just Erling. If we had just Erling he would be controlled by two or three central defenders. We need more players in those positions, definitely. We have done it. We have to do it more often.”
