Dortmund star Haaland suffers torn hamstring in major injury blow to Bundesliga outfit


Erling Haaland, Borussia Dortmund 2020-21, Champions League

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has suffered a torn hamstring, the club have confirmed.

The injury is a major blow to Dortmund, with the 20-year-old having established himself as one of Europe's best strikers since joining from Red Bull Salzburg in January.

Haaland scored 15 goals in just 18 appearances for Dortmund last season and has started the current season even better, with 17 strikes in 14 games acrossall competitions.

Dortmund have a busy fixture list for December, with seven games remaining in the month. The injury puts Haaland in doubt for all those matches, which will take place acrossthe Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB-Pokal.

With Haaland out, Dortmund could rely more heavily on 16-year-old sensationYoussoufa Moukoko, who recently became the youngest player in Bundesliga history.

Haaland himself endorsedMoukoko's talents after he was brought on for his senior debut againstHertha Berlin last month.

"I think he’s the biggest talent in the world right now. 16 years and oneday, that’s quite amazing. He has a big career ahead of him," Haaland toldESPN.Asked about his own talent in comparison, he added:“I’m over 20 years, so I’m getting old now, so that’s how it is."

Haaland is closing in on current Man Utd head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's record for goals by a Norwegian in the Champions League.

Solskjaer, who coached Haaland earlier in his career at Molde, has 20 career Champions League goals andspoke earlier in the week about the forward, who has already scored 16 in the competition.

"He’ll beat it and very quickly, that’s for sure,"Solskjaer said. "The boy has had a great start to his career.
