Erling Haaland enjoying Pep Guardiola's 'complicated system' at Manchester City

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland likes the fact that manager Pep Guardiola is just as passionate about football as he is - and is enjoying the team's 'complicated system'.

The Norwegian goal machine has already found the back of the net 12 times in only eight games for City this season.

Despite his early success, the 22-year-old also admitted that Guardiola's tactics are complex and takes some getting used to.

"I think he's a kind of a bit of a football freak like me. We both love football and yeah, he was a player now he's a manager and yeah, he's crazy about football and this is something I like because he thinks of everything in football, and how you can do things better, and this is what I like about [him]," Haaland told Telemundo Deportes.

"It's been good so far [settling in]. You can see with the goals and how we've been playing. It's a really complicated system and I've been going in the team and trying to get it [the tactics] as quick as I can because there is no time.

"I cannot waste time doing anything else. So I've been trying to go into the team as quick as I can. It's a nice system, a really complicated system, but it's really nice."

Haaland has already scored two hat-tricks in the Premier League, against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.
