Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Manchester City will get even better after signing Erling Haaland, but added that Pep Guardiola's side have never been a one-man team and this move won't change that.

Man City confirmed on Tuesday that they have agreed a deal to bring the Norwegian sensation to the Etihad Stadium from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

Klopp, whose Liverpool side remain locked in a Premier League title race with City this season, was asked about the transfer following the Reds' 2-1 win at Aston Villa.

When asked whether Haaland will improve City, Klopp replied: "A lot. Good player. City was never and will never be a team that wins because of one player.

"They have a specific way to play, and I think Erling will all of a sudden realise that he will score a lot of goals at the second post where he just puts his foot on it. He will love that. He is a real beast.

"He was injured a couple of times at Dortmund but when he's fit he's a real beast. Unfortunately, he is a really good signing."

Haaland has scored a staggering 85 goals in 88 games since joining Dortmund in January 2020.

Prior to his move to Germany, Haaland enjoyed a fruitful one-year spell at Red Bull Salzburg, where he even netted against Liverpool in the Champions League.
