the norwegian gunner Erling Haalandperhaps the best player in the world today, was the great protagonist of the previous day of the duel of semifinals of the UEFA Champions League that will play this Tuesday Real Madrid y Manchester City The show It can be seen, only in South America by Star+.

The championship’s top scorer was present at the coaches’ press conferences Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola. It is, without a doubt, the main weapon of his team and the main concern of the Spanish team.

“I like how my team plays, I have always liked it and this year too. Against teams with high pressure, using the long ball with Haaland is an advantage and we will try to take advantage of it. But the others are sometimes better, they also play, they are not lame,” said the Catalan coach.

In addition, Guardiola added: “The style is set by the players, If you have Haaland you have to take advantage of him and we will play for him. When I didn’t have it, I played with a false striker and in a different way. The idea is to play to win the game.”

For his part, Ancelotti highlighted his relevance although he admitted that they will not only worry about him: “Obviously Haaland is a very dangerous player who is showing an impressive quality to score goals, he is a danger, but talking only about him means not talking about a complete team that plays football very well, attacks and defends well with many ideas. We are not planning a match to stop Haaland but rather a team that seems unstoppable.”
