Haaland reveals what annoys him most

ERLING HAALAND has called for goal-line technology to be introduced across all lines on the pitch.

Currently Hawk-Eye only serves the actual goal-line, leaving corners and throw-ins up to the officials.

This season there have been a number of controversial decisions relating to whether the ball had gone out in the build-up to goals.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta whinged that he felt the ball was out prior to Newcastle’s winner against his team back in November — even though another angle appeared to prove otherwise.

Appearing on Manchester City’s official podcast, their star striker said of the changes he’d like to implement: “The first is to introduce goal line technology all over the pitch, so that you always know when the ball is out of play.”

The Norwegian, 23, then revealed his gripes with throw-ins themselves.

He added: “But what annoys me is throw-ins.

“If you throw this way or that way, it doesn’t matter. Just make sure you have two hands on the ball.

“I don’t even know the rules, and if I’m going to make a throw, I’ll probably do it wrong.

“But it doesn’t matter if you throw the ball straight down, straight up or whatever. I would change that.

“And you can’t steal too many meters, there should be a limit to how far you can go and a limit to how long you can take.

“I think it will be like that in the future.”

On Friday he played 75 minutes as his side, who have not qualified for Euro 2024, lost 2-1 to the Czech Republic.

He will be back in action on tonight, when Norway host Slovakia in Oslo.

City fans will be hoping that Haaland doesn’t exert himself too much in the friendly, with a huge showdown with Arsenal to come next Sunday.

Despite nursing an injury earlier in the campaign, Haaland has enjoyed another prolific season.

Having helped City to the Treble during his first campaign in England, he has bagged 29 goals so far this term, with 18 of them coming in 23 Prem appearances. — Sun.
