'Wow', 'Treble winners faking injury' - Liverpool fans react to Erling Haaland injury update ahead of Man City showdown
Liverpool fans have slammed Erling Haaland as a “disgrace” for being available for Man City despite withdrawing from international duty through injury.
The big Nord jetted back home after playing in Norway’s 1-0 loss to Spain but their failure to qualify for Euro 2024 was already sealed before their subsequent 3-3 draw to Scotland without Haaland on Sunday (19 November).
It was reported that Haaland, despite his injury, will be available for Pep Guardiola for the weekend showdown against Liverpool – a battle between first and second in the Premier League table.
The 23-year-old has continued his record-breaking form from last season and has bagged himself 17 goals in 18 appearances in all competitions, so his availability could cause the Reds one or two problems.
However, many Liverpool supporters feel there is something else afoot and have taken to social media to react to the news.
One fan was sure that Haaland was “faking” his injury but took it as a compliment to the strength of Jurgen Klopp’s men.
This supporter claimed he “sabotaged” Norway’s Euro 2024 chances by heading back to Manchester.
This fan is confident that Haaland may regret his actions and backs Liverpool for the win.
One fan foresaw this outcome and predicts Rodri will also make a quick comeback to face the Reds after his injury scare with Spain.
Other Reds were quite happy to see “pants” Haaland available to face them and claimed City play better without him. Advantage Liverpool?
One fan believes Haaland values his football in Manchester more than his football for his nation.
This supporter destroyed Haaland and claimed he would never “be in the GOAT conversation” if he doesn’t show more commitment to his country.
