Pep Guardiola warned Manchester City that if they become too reliant on Erling Haaland they won’t end their quest to win the Champions League.

City start will their latest European campaign with a trip to Sevilla on tonight, four months after their heart-breaking semi-final exit to Real Madrid last season.

Guardiola said Haaland, who has scored 10 goals in his first six Premier League games, has improved his team but insists the Norwegian will not be able to fire City to Champions League success on his own.

Guardiola told a news conference on Monday:

If we put everything on Erling’s shoulders,we are not going to win the Champions League. We try to help him score goals. We convinced him to come here as he felt we did not have strikers and he could play with us.

I understand everyone talks about Erling, but I have three or four new players and I want them to settle. I hope he can help us, but we won’t win just because of him and we don’t lose just because of him.

He has a special quality and maybe he can solve the problems we have, definitely, but we have to play good as a team as well.
