Erling Haaland was the great star of the quarterfinal tie of FA Cup in between City of Manchester and the Burnley (6-0). The Norwegian striker scored three of the team’s six goals Pep Guardiolawho decided to reserve his big star once he got his sixth hat trick of the season.
Haaland has been replaced after scoring five goals against RB Leipzig in the Champions League and in the Cup he also watched the game from the bench despite performing well.
That’s why they asked Guardiola the reasons for the change and this time Catalan he answered with sarcasm.
“I changed it to three goals (scored) so as not to break the record of Messi in the FA Cup. That’s the reason”, said Guardiola in an ironic response, because Messi has never played in the FA Cup and does not have any record in the world’s oldest competition.
