Pep Guardiola disappointed Julia Roberts ‘didn’t come to see’ Manchester City | Football News

Erling Haaland continues to soar at City of Manchester and aim higher on Tuesday with five goals in a game, but the coach PepGuardiola still frustrated — not with anything to do with performance but the fact that hollywood star Julia Roberts went to Manchester but didn’t watch his team.
Haaland scored five goals to equalize the record in Man City’s 7-0 win over Leipzig. Premier League the giant stormed in championship quarterfinals with a final 8-1 victory.
But Guardiola’s mind was preoccupied with something else.
Oscar winner Roberts, City’s manager explains, is one of his three idols, along with Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods. But during her visit to the UK, she chose to see Manchester Unitedrather than Guardiola’s Man City team, which have won four Premier League titles in five years.
“She came at a time when we were playing better than United, in the last four or five years,” he said. “And she visited Man United. She didn’t come to see us. That’s why this…even if I win the Champions League[it]can’t compare to Julia Roberts coming to Manchester and not coming to see us.”
Guardiola’s comments offer a stark contrast to Haaland’s scoring feat on a night when he looked like the man who had finally put an end to City’s quest for a first Champions League title.

He is a scoring machine that produced an impressive performance to send City into the quarter-finals.
“I was confused in my head. I remember I took a shot but didn’t think,” Haaland said after competing against Lionel Messi and Luiz Adriano by scoring five goals in a Champions League game.
Haaland needed just 25 games to score 30 goals, surpassing the record held by former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward Ruud van Nistelrooy, who reached that milestone in 34.
At 22 years, 236 days, Haaland is also the youngest player to score 30 Champions League goals – surpassing Kylian Mbappé, who broke Messi’s record.
Haaland has scored 39 goals this season in all competitions.
