Erling Haaland y "pressures" of the Dortmund so that it defines his future: "I just want to play soccer"

Erling Haaland revealed to Norwegian television that he has received “pressure” from Borussia Dortmund to make a quick decision regarding his future and confessed: “All I want is to play football.”

the norwegian striker Erling Haaland admitted that the Borussia Dortmund has begun to pressure him to make “a decision” about his future, assuring that it is a situation that makes him uncomfortable because the team is “in a difficult phase” and that right now he just wants to “play football”.

“The last six months I decided not to say anything out of respect for Dortmund, but now the club has started to pressure me to make a decision and all I want is to play football.”, confessed on Norwegian television Viaplay Football after his team’s victory against Freiburg (5-1) in the Bundesliga.

In that sense, the Norwegian star, who has been urged to make a decision before March despite having a contract until 2024, acknowledges that the pressure could further reduce his chances of staying at the German club.

“This means that something is going to happen now,” he confessed, although he does not think it is the time to make a decision, emphasizing that “we are in the midst of a difficult phase with many games.”

After his statements, the general director of the German cast, Hans Joachim Watzke, called for calm.

“Erling is a spontaneous person and he is still young, he is allowed to do that, it is not a problem. But you also need to understand a little about our situation. Surely, when he wakes up tomorrow, he will understand.”, he claimed.

Finally, the manager stated that “Currently, there are no talks or dates, so I can’t figure it out. As a professional, Haaland must also understand that his future is being talked about at some point.”.
