Liverpool Fans Post Footage Of Erling Haaland Missing From Three Yards Out In Man City Training

Liverpool Fans Post Footage Of Erling Haaland Missing From Three Yards Out In Man City Training

Haaland was City’s marquee signing of the transfer window.

Liverpool fans have posted a video of Manchester City’s Erling Haaland missing from three yards out during a training session. 

The footage that has been uploaded on Twitter showed Haaland hitting his shot straight at the keeper from three yards after the ball bounced his way. 

Liverpool fans jumped on the chance to make fun of the Norway international as the fan captioned the video with a message that read: “How do you miss from 3 yards out.” with two crying laughter emojis. 

In fairness to Haaland, the miss wasn’t too bad, the ball came at him unexpectedly and therefore he couldn’t get a clean contact. Safe to say Haaland will not be missing these chances too often when the season gets underway. 

This comes after Liverpool new boy Darwin Nunez was on the end of criticism after his slow start for the Reds. 

During his first two matches against Manchester United and Crystal Palace, Nunez missed two big chances to open his Liverpool account. The chance against United was arguably the easiest chance as the ball bounced kindly in front of the Uruguayan after a shot from Mohamed Salah cannoned off the post. But the 23-year-old managed to sky his shot into the crowd. 

Rival fans were quick to jump on Nunez’s case, he has been branded as a ‘flop’ and a ‘waste of money’ already, despite playing only 60 minutes in two matches. 

Manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that it is normal for rival fans to make fun of every mistake. 

He said: “I’m not worried at all, the general judgement is absolutely nil interest [to us]. It will be like this, and we all know it.” 

“It's kind of a game or a joke for some people to pick out some situations where a player's not doing well. That's only a game from [fans of] other clubs, which is normal. Our fans probably do [the same] with signings of Manchester United. We cannot take this seriously.” 

Whilst Nunez’s team mate, Trent Alexander Arnold is confident the goals will come for the striker. 

He said: “I’m sure we’ll be able to supply him with the ball to score goals. You can see he’s itching for that first goal, but I’m sure once it comes it will be like London buses.” 

With Haaland and Nunez being the high profile signings for the two best teams in the Premier League, all eyes will be on their every move as they battle it out for the Golden Boot.
