Haaland’s telling verdict on new Dortmund boss amid ongoing transfer saga

Erling Haaland has silenced transfer rumours after saying he is looking forward to working with new Borussia Dortmund boss Marco Rose.

Haaland has been linked with a move to the Premier League with clubs Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United all interested in signing him.

But it seems he is staying put in the Bundesliga and has returned for pre-season training at Dortmund.

He will be under new management with Rose who replaces Edin Terzic in the role.

Haaland said about the new boss: “I talked a little bit with him.

“I know him from before because I had six months with him in Salzburg. He’s a nice guy and I look forward to working with him.

“The training is so hard here, so it’s exactly the same as it was in Salzburg, a lot of hard training and there is going to be a lot of running. That’s what I expect the tactic to be to press a lot, run a lot and attack a lot.

“Now we have to have a good pre-season and have to get to know each other and we will see.

“We won the DFB Pokal last season which was very important for us as a club and the fans. That was important and we have to see,” he told Stadium Astro.

Haaland may not be moving to the English league this summer but his teammate Jadon Sancho has now signed for United.

The 20-year-old added he is sad to have lost the England star.

“Me and Jadon understood each other very well and he’s a top player.

“So of course it’s sad that he goes but that’s how it is and that’s football. You never know what will happen.

“But I think that there’s a lot of other good players that I have a good tone with and it can become even better.

“We have to see who I match the best with.”

Sancho hasn’t yet joined United for pre-season training as he has jetted off on holiday with England teammates after their Euro 2020 campaign.

The star was a part of Gareth Southgate’s side who reached England’s first major tournament final in 55 years.

The Three Lions lost the final on penalties to Italy and Sancho was among three England stars to miss their attempt.

After the match he, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka were subjected to racist abuse and Sancho has since spoken about it.

He wrote on social media: “I’m not going pretend that I didn’t see the racial abuse that me and my brothers Marcus and Bukayo received after the game, but sadly it’s nothing new. As a society we need to do better, and hold these people accountable.

“Hate will never win.”
