Erling Haaland on his Dortmund future: “The club has started to press me into making a decision.”

Speaking to Viaplay Fotball and Jan Aage Fjørtoft after Borussia Dortmund’s 5-1 win against Freiburg, Erling Haaland discussed his future at the Bundesliga club.

“Well, the last six months I have chosen not to say anything out of respect for Dortmund but now the club has started to press me into making a decision, but all I want to do is to play football. But they press me to make a decision about my future,” said Haaland.

“They have started to put a lot of pressure on me and I have to accept that. I have chosen not to say anything out of respect for the club and the fans. But now it says itself that a lot of pressure is coming from the club so now is the time to get things started.

“I have said from the beginning that I want to focus on football because that is when I’m at my best. Not when other things come into my mind.”

Haaland has a contract with Borussia Dortmund until 2024 but there has been discussions as to whether the 21-year-old will remain at BVB beyond the summer, or if he will sign a contract extension.

The Norway international has scored 78 goals in 77 games for BVB.
