Manchester City striker Erling Haaland appears to have aggravated his left ankle injury while playing for Norway in a friendly match against the Faroe Islands, raising concerns about his availability for upcoming games.
Aggravation of Ankle Injury
Manchester City’s Erling Haaland may have worsened his left ankle injury while representing Norway in a friendly match against the Faroe Islands. Haaland, who came on as a halftime substitute, is said to have sustained a ‘little twist in his ankle’ late in the game, according to Norway’s team doctor Ola Sand.
Evaluation and Previous Injury
Sand described Haaland’s ankle as ‘a little bit vulnerable’ and mentioned that the pain was intense initially but subsided quickly. Norway coach Ståle Solbakken acknowledged that this isn’t the first time Haaland has experienced such an injury, referring to a previous ankle issue in a Premier League match against Bournemouth on Nov. 4, which led to his substitution.
Uncertainty for Manchester City
With the Premier League clash against second-place Liverpool approaching on Nov. 25, there are concerns about Haaland’s fitness and availability for the crucial fixture. City will be hoping for a quick recovery for their star striker, as they aim to maintain their lead in the league standings.
