Inter Milan manager, Simone Inzaghi has hinted how his team would stop Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland when both teams clash in the Champions League final on Saturday night.
With Pep Guardiola’s team trying to complete an incredible treble after winning the Premier League and FA Cup, Man City are the clear favourite going into Saturday night’s final in Istanbul, Turkey.
Man City may prove to be too much, especially with Haaland up top, despite Inter being expected to put up a strong fight.
In his first season at the Etihad, Haaland has scored 52 goals in as many games, including 12 in 10 Champions League matches thus far.
But Inzaghi is now saying that Inter players will mark Haaland tightly during the encounter.
“We all know what a great player he [Erling Haaland] is and how strong City is,” Inzaghi said in his pre-match press conference on Friday.
“He will be marked tightly. However, we will keep a close eye on all the City players. We need to stop Haaland and also the other players.
“The midfield will be key tomorrow, but all areas will be important. We will need to run and we need hearts and minds too. We need to go to an extra yard tomorrow.”
