Manchester City’s star striker Erling Haaland is grappling with a recurring ankle injury, raising doubts about his readiness for crucial upcoming matches, including a face-off against Liverpool.**
The Norwegian striker suffered the latest setback during a recent match against the Faroe Islands, where he attempted to score but ended up aggravating his ankle. This incident comes on the heels of a similar problem just a week and a half ago against Bournemouth. According to the team doctor, Haaland experiences immediate pain from a twisted ankle, though it fades quickly.

The severity and duration of the injury are still uncertain, prompting Haaland to undergo treatment in hopes of regaining fitness for the upcoming games. Manchester City, already contending with injuries to key players like John Stones and Kevin De Bruyne, faces added anxiety over Haaland’s potential absence and its impact on the team’s performance, particularly in the upcoming clash against Liverpool.
The Manchester City medical staff, in collaboration with the Norway national team, is closely monitoring Haaland’s condition. Discussions are underway to determine the best course of action for his recovery, adding an air of anticipation and concern for both the team and fans as they await updates on the star striker’s status.
