Erling Haaland says the reason he opted to join Borrussia Dortmund ahead of Manchester United is because the German side were more direct with their intentions.
The Former Salzburg Forward, who scored 28 goals in 22 appearances across all competitions for the Dutch team was touted by a host of Clubs in Europe, after a fine performance especially in the Champions league.
“They just went direct and said, ‘We need you upfront, we like your playing style and we want to have you here”.
“I liked how they spoke to me then and that’s what triggered me [to sign]. I just felt that me and Dortmund was a good match”.
“To slightly get to know people better, to train good with the team and we’ll see if I am good enough I will play and we’ll just have to see, step by step,” Haaland said of his aims at Dortmund”.
“Of course, I want to play and I know I have something to give to the team. That’s my main goal now to have smaller goals and to reach them and I know it will be good”.
