In a noteworthy development, Erling Haaland has resumed training with Manchester City, signaling his intent to make a comeback from a bone stress injury in his foot.
The prolific striker has been sidelined since his last appearance for the English champions against Aston Villa in the Premier League on December 6. However, on Monday, Haaland rejoined training in Abu Dhabi, where the club has established its warm weather training camp, expressing his eagerness for a return.
Having missed the past nine matches, including five Premier League games, due to the foot injury, the 23-year-old’s return to training marks a positive step. Earlier this month, he briefly participated in training before Manchester City’s FA Cup fixture against Huddersfield. Nevertheless, Pep Guardiola emphasized a cautious approach, asserting that he won’t rush the star player back into action.
As Manchester City gears up for a crucial FA Cup fourth-round clash against Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur on Friday, Haaland’s return to training provides a significant boost for Pep Guardiola and the team.
