Erling Haaland exited Norway’s training session on Tuesday with a limp, sparking concern among Manchester City fans ahead of their crucial clash with Arsenal following the international break.


The striker, pivotal to City’s Premier League title aspirations with 18 goals in 23 games this season, previously missed ten matches due to injury. However, Haaland’s international stint began on a worrisome note as he was seen limping off the field after falling during training.

Despite Haaland’s setback, Norway team doctor Ola Sand attempted to allay fears, stating, “No problem,” in an interview with TV2.

Following City’s FA Cup quarter-final triumph over Newcastle United, manager Pep Guardiola emphasized the importance of players safeguarding themselves during international duty, especially ahead of significant matches.

“[Haaland] is not my player anymore from now on; what [all the players] decide will be fine,” Guardiola remarked. “They know that they fought a lot and trained a lot, with a lot of adrenaline and concentration to arrive in this position. They understand these are friendly games and must handle them wisely. Hopefully, they can do so.”
