Manchester City’s new superstar, Erling Haaland has been on a goal-scoring spree in the ongoing Premier League, scoring 19 goals in just eight matches leaving teams scrambling to find ways to stop the Norwegian international.

Pep Guardiola reserved praise for Erling Haaland and Phil Foden after Manchester City beat Southampton 4-0 at the Etihad on Saturday afternoon.

Haaland scored his 20th goal of the season for Manchester City against Southampton in what was just his 13th appearance for the club.

Bournemouth have so far been the only side to have stopped him from scoring a goal. But with fans of opposition sides having left frustrated at Erling Haaland, one of them have come up with a rather innovative idea to stop him and Pep Guardiola had an epic reaction to it.

Heartbroken after Erling Haaland scored a spectacular hat-trick against Manchester United last Sunday, a Red Devils fan set up a petition named “Petition to get Erling Haaland banned from Association Football because it’s just not fair”.

The description of the petition reads: “It’s just simply not fair. We can make a change. Now is the time for us people to act. This robot should not be allowed to carry on in our country.”

And as of yesterday, October 7, it has already received around two million signatures.

When Manchester City boss Guardiola was asked about this petition he replied saying, “Yeah, it’s a joke. It’s a joke, it’s good.”

Asked if Haaland’s goal-scoring spree has left him astonished, Guardiola replied saying,

“It is not about disbelief. It is the fact that he has an incredible instinct. He has an incredible sense as a striker he goes one second before the ball arrives. These types of player, how can a manager teach him it is impossible. He is a natural. He did it Norway Austria, he smells it. Thank you for choosing us we are fortunate to have this talent.”
