Haaland "ready" to leave Borussia Dortmund says Bundesliga great

Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus thinks Erling Haaland could already be “ready” to leave Borussia Dortmund after less than a year at the club.

Haaland only arrived at Dortmund in January, but he has scored 33 goals in 32 appearances for the club.

And Matthaus, speaking to the Bundesliga website, says the Norwegian could soon move on.

“Erling Haaland is a win not just for Dortmund but for the entire Bundesliga," German icon Matthaus explained.

"At the age of 20, he is a machine. He is a flying striker. He brings a positive energy in the team while also scoring goals. He is irreplaceable.

" Erling Haaland is regarded at Dortmund like Robert Lewandowski is at Bayern: the player up front who is not only responsible for the goals but in charge of dragging the team with him. He is a leader at the age of 20.

"That says a lot and on top of that, he knows what he needs to do. He works defensively as well, something I really enjoy seeing Robert Lewandowski do as well. He is not one to just stay forward. His mannerisms as well, for a 20-year-old, to not only think of himself but of his team.

"This positivity that he radiates, radiates on the team which is why I think that someday, Haaland will not be playing at Dortmund anymore and will make the next step.

"He is already ready and we are proud to have him in the Bundesliga.

"Dortmund need to be pleased to have gotten him because he is a striker that fits to a club with such emotions.”
