At this point Roy Keane’s criticism of Erling Haaland is becoming tiresome

Another day and more criticism of Erling Haaland from Roy Keane has created headlines. At this point, Keane’s repeated jabs at City’s star striker are just becoming tiresome.

Fresh off of scoring four goals in City’s vital Premier League win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium yesterday Haaland’s performance has created the headlines. That is to almost every pundit in the game bar one.

Speaking on SkySports before Liverpool’s clash with Tottenham, the former Manchester United captain has now accused Erling Haaland of acting like a spoilt brat. City’s number 9 was frustrated with a decision from the referee moments before he was substituted during City’s win yesterday. Speaking about Haaland’s reaction to being substituted, Keane said: “We saw Haaland yesterday being brought off, not too happy, behaving like a spoiled brat. But because they win the game and he scores goals, it’s almost forgotten about.

Roy Keane’s criticism of Erling Haaland today follows on from his take that Haaland’s overall play resembles that of a League Two player. While Keane has praised Haaland’s goal scoring ability in the past, he is quick to fire shots at City’s star striker. It appears that anything negative in Haaland’s game is an invitation for Keane to criticise City’s number 9.

Roy Keane’s jabs at Haaland are becoming tiresome now. No player is immune from criticism, that is a given in today’s era of football coverage. But Keane’s most recent criticism of City’s number 9 appears to be a shot taken for the sake of it. Jan Aage Fjørtoft believes the SkySports pundit has found a new enemy long after his playing days have ended.

Perhaps Roy Keane’s comments on Erling Haaland today were a retort to comments Haaland made yesterday. Speaking with Viaplay following City’s crucial win, Haaland didn’t pull any punches when asked about Keane’s criticism of his play. Haaland said: “I really don’t care about that man.

Erling Haaland likely said it best when he responded to Keane’s criticism of his play. Keane’s criticism of Erling Haaland has just become tiresome now. Perhaps there will be a new shot Haaland’s way from the former Manchester United captain in the near future, but that will be just as tiresome as his most recent criticism of the Norwegian international.
