The Norwegian's brilliant late winner against Borussia Dortmund in midweek led to Guardiola comparing him with Johan Cryuff and the City manager believes his quality will only improve.Guardiola said: "

He's an exceptional striker, I've said it many times. But at the age he is, and I think he has ambition, he wants to be better, and I think he will be better."

Haaland scored 86 goals in 89 games for Dortmund and has continued at City where he left off in Germany.

Guardiola said: "He's a perfect person to manage. He's a nice guy and this is the most important thing.

"The quality he has he had before he came here, he has continued to do what he has done. We didn't add many things."

Manchester City forward Haaland has been named the Premier League's Player of the Month for August after scoring nine goals in five games in a brilliant start to his career in England.

The 22-year-old bagged a double on his league debut against West Ham and scored once at Newcastle United before hitting consecutive hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest as City won four of their opening five games.

The Norwegian beat competition from Arsenal duo Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard as well as Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic among others to win the award.
