Erling Haaland knew straight away that Dortmund was the club for him. “I had a very good feeling about Dortmund from the first moment, and that’s why I’m here. I liked the whole club, the history, the people in the club and how they run it. We decided Dortmund was the best option. And it is,” the Norwegian striker told ‘FourFourTwo’.
“We’re capable of everything. The start here has been absolutely fantastic, and the club have helped me a lot – it’s not easy to come to a new place in the middle of the season. I already feel at home.”
Haaland is under contract with Dortmund until 2024 and loves seeing the famous ‘Yellow Wall’ in home matches. “I’d seen it before that, of course, but they showed me – all the fans are amazing here.”
Haaland didn’t want to speak about other clubs interest in him before, as well as now, out of respect for Dortmund. “It’s always nice when clubs are interested. It means you’ve done something right.”
Despite his young age, Haaland isn’t short of confidence. When asked if he was surprised by the number of goals he continues to score, he said: “Not really, because I’ve been doing this my whole life. It’s what I wanted to do when I was older. It’s what I do. I always knew I’d be a good player, but things have been going fast. I like that speed!”
