Guardiola worries over Haaland's fitness ahead of FA Cup semifinal

Posted : 19 April 2024

Pep Guardiola has expressed concerns over Erling Haaland's availability for Manchester City's FA Cup semifinal against Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday. Haaland, who was substituted before extra time in City's Champions League quarterfinal second leg loss to Real Madrid, reportedly asked to be withdrawn due to an unspecified issue.


Confirming Haaland's injury, Guardiola indicated uncertainty regarding the striker's recovery in time for the crucial clash with Chelsea. Despite Haaland's setback, midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is expected to feature after being substituted against Real due to fatigue.


Acknowledging the toll of a demanding season, Guardiola emphasized the physical strain on players, attributing fatigue to the intense schedule and high-pressure matches. Despite the disappointment of their Champions League exit, Guardiola stressed the importance of bouncing back and maintaining focus on their pursuit of domestic success, particularly in the FA Cup.
