Dortmund announce Haaland was injured

Borussia Dortmund announced on Monday that young Norwegian striker Erling Haaland has muscle problems that will require further tests without specifying his absence.

Haaland scored the opening goal in a 3-2 win over host Hoffenheim on Saturday in the league, before coming out in the 63rd minute with an injury.”Haaland underwent detailed examinations on Sunday and Monday. According to the medical report, the Norwegian suffers from muscle problems, which requires treatment and more tests in the coming days.” We hope that Erling will return to full fitness as soon as possible,”.

The impressive striker has missed 10 matches in all competitions this season, due to two muscle injuries, and during his absence, Borussia were knocked out of the Champions League group stage. The two-week Bundesliga winter break will give Dortmund and the player a glimmer to take advantage of time and recovery. But Dortmund, who are currently second in the league with 43 points, are behind by a margin of six points ahead of leaders Bayern Munich.

Haaland, who several clubs are seeking to sign, missed five weeks due to a rupture in the muscle during the winter of last season. Tensions between Haaland and his team have recently risen after he accused his club of pressuring him to decide his future before May. Haaland is contracted with Dortmund until 2024, but his contract includes a clause allowing him to leave at the end of this season for around 80 million euros ($91 million).
