Man City's Foden backs 'unstoppable' teammate Haaland.

Manchester City's new signing Erling Haaland is "scary" in front of goal, says Foden.

Phil Foden says Erling Haaland is a great addition to Manchester City and has backed the Norway international to quickly adapt to English football.

Haaland joined City from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund on a five-year contract last month, ending City’s chase for a prolific frontman following the departure of Sergio Aguero from the Etihad last year.

"He's a great addition to the team, makes everyone laugh and is humble which is important when you come to a team," Foden told Sky Sports on Thursday. "He's hungry to achieve things with us which can only mean good things.

"In front of goal he's scary. He's coming to a complete different league (with) much faster football, so it might take him a little (time) to get used to, but I'm sure when he's in his flow he's going to be unstoppable.

"He is very similar to Aguero, Haaland's got all types of finishes as well. If we can get him the ball in the right areas he is going to be really important for us this year."
