Erling Haaland happy for ‘the vibe’ he has struck with Manchester City teammate Jack Grealish 

Erling Haaland-Norway

Erling Haaland is relishing his blossoming partnership with new Manchester City teammate Jack Grealish after the pair combined for the striker’s first goal for the club.

Haaland needed just 12 minutes to open his Man City goal account in a 1-0 friendly win over Bayern Munich on a stormy Saturday evening at Lambeau Field in Green Baydo.

The 22-year-old Norwegian, a £51million summer signing from Borussia Dortmund, has already been impressed with the former Aston Villa playmaker, who has struggled to make the impact he might have hoped following his own £100m switch to the Etihad Stadium last August. But after their first start together, Haaland is convinced there is much more to come from the pair.

He told Sky Sports: “He’s good. He has to get better, I have to get better, but good link. I like the vibe around him, so it’s going to be fun.”

Despite playing just 41 minutes of the game, Haaland left a good impression on the over 80,000 fans who came to watch the game. 

“As you probably all know, I’ve been watching a lot of City games for the last years and the last years have been without a striker,” he added.

”So of course, I’ve been seeing myself in these kinds of situations today, so I’m not surprised.”

After scoring the winning goal against Bayern, the Norwegian was relieved that he had finally won against the Bundesliga giants even though it was just a pre-season game. 

He said: “It was about time, I have to say, seven losses in a row, so to win against Bayern feels good.

“The quality is good, and it was also good to play against Bayern to get a real test before Liverpool in the week.”

Haaland scored a sensational 85 goals and 22 assists in 88 games in 18 months at Borussia Dortmund.
