BVB – Erling Haaland complains about Borussia Dortmund: the club is putting me under pressure


Minutes after Dortmund’s thrashing of Freiburg, two-time goalscorer Erling Haaland caused a stir in an interview. The goalscorer made the BVB bosses look bad.

Borussia Dortmund had an almost perfect evening in the 5-1 win over Freiburg – until Erling Haaland stepped up to the microphone of Norwegian TV channel Viaplay Fotball a few minutes after the final whistle at Jan Age Fjörtoft and started.

Haaland spoke briefly about the match and when it came to his still uncertain future at BVB, the striker surprised with surprisingly spicy statements. “The club is putting pressure on me. I have to make a decision, but I just want to play football,” said Haaland.

Haaland: “I think I should come and pot…”

“I haven’t said anything for the past six months out of respect for Dortmund, I’ve had everyone around the world talk. And that probably means I have to come to Potte now. They want an answer. That means things have to happen.”

In fact, it was the 21-year-old’s first public appearance in several months, as Haaland had recently withdrawn completely and stopped attending interviews.

Haaland wants to ‘set things in motion’

The 21-year-old still has a contract with BVB until June 2024. However, he can leave the DFB Cup winner in the summer due to an exit clause of 75 million euros. BVB officials recently announced that they would like to meet Haaland and his surroundings soon to clarify the future of the storm jewel.

“I don’t want to think about anything but football because it gets hard when I have other things on my mind, but they’ve been pushing for so long that I’m going to start things,” Haaland said. In an “ideal world” he wouldn’t decide now. “We are in a difficult period with many matches. I really just want to play football, but I can’t.”

BVB ultimatum for the player

The BVB management recently issued a kind of ultimatum to the top scorer that BVB wanted clarity about the future of the player quickly in order to avoid endless discussions and thus a potential problem.

Exactly the opposite should be the case again after the Haaland interview…
