After his team's convincing 3-0 victory over Burnley, he was asked about the acquisition of the Croatian international while speaking to City's official YouTube channel.

Following Josko Gvardiol's outstanding double against Vincent Kompany's team on Friday night, Erling Haaland praised the signing of the player to Manchester City.

Erling Haaland raves about the signing of Josko Gvardiol at Manchester City

The 21-year-old, who Dani Olmo described as "world-class," made his Sky Blues debut against Burnley after replacing Rico Lewis at left-back off the bench.

Despite only participating for a short period of time, the former RB Leipzig defender quickly adjusted to the situation, defensively containing Jacob Bruun Larssen, and projecting a very calm demeanor when handling the ball.

Erling Haaland voiced his happiness at Josko Gvardiol's arrival following Manchester City's victory over Burnley.

He will undoubtedly bring a lot of talent. Excellent signing. We are excited to welcome him into the squad and get to know him since he is young and will have many wonderful years ahead of him at this club, the Norwegian stated.

Josko Gvardiol could become City’s best defender this season

Erling Haaland is aware of the caliber of quality that Manchester City has acquired, much like those who have watched or competed against Josko Gvardiol.

So much so that, despite the fact that it can be viewed as a hot take, Gvardiol has the potential to emerge as City's star defender based on performance this year.

Given the caliber of players like John Stones, Ruben Dias, Nathan Ake, and Manuel Akanji, that might be a bold claim to make.

Josko Gvardiol, though, undoubtedly has one of the most complete profiles of the group, if not the most complete. Under Pep Guardiola's guidance, it seems likely that he would sooner rather than later reaffirm his place as a world-class center-back.
