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.
