Guardiola infuriates Fantasy Football managers with another vague Haaland update

Pep Guardiola has infuriated Fantasy Football managers by giving another vague update surrounding Erling Haaland's injury situation.

The Manchester City star has been a revelation for fans of the world's largest statistical performance game, registering a whopping 117 points already for the 2022/23 campaign – 34 more than next highest scorer Harry Kane.

Already pummelling in 17 Premier League goals by the start of November, Alan Shearer and Andy Cole's joint record of 34 is well within his sights but, after struggling with injuries throughout his time at Borussia Dortmund, Haaland was ruled out of City's trip to the King Power Stadium with a bruised foot.

Also missing from the subsequent Champions League match on Wednesday evening, several Fantasy Football managers have held onto Haaland in their 15-man squads, despite a price drop from £12.2million to £12.1m.

Eager to know if their prized asset will be involved at the weekend, Guardiola provided little comfort when addressing reporters in Friday's press conference. "He [Haaland] is much better, we will decide today," said the Man City boss. "It's a good step, start to training, now we have training this afternoon and we will see."

Unable to confirm if the Norwegian powerhouse will feature against Fulham on Saturday (November 5), Guardiola's latest update has left Fantasy managers enraged. "Ok so let’s arrange another press conference for after training…" blasted one furious FPL manager.

"Baldy said the exact same thing last week," commented another, highlighting that Guardiola said the same before Haaland's absence against Leicester City. "Pep being Pep once again. Looking risky to put him as captain, once again. Could definitely be a minutes risk," harked a third.

"Same as last weekend and we all know how that ended…." slammed a fourth. "I hate this Pep Guardiola, he's never straight forward.," said a fifth.
