Haaland gets year of free food from ex-Germany international's restaurant after scoring for Dortmund against rivals Schalke


Erling Haaland Dortmund 2020-21

Erling Haaland’s Revierderby goal for Borussia Dortmund against Schalke on Saturday has won him a year of free food from former Dortmund man Kevin Grosskreutz.

Now 32, former Germany international Grosskreutz has dropped down to the third division with Uerdingen, but the Dortmund native remains a keen supporter of his former club.

He played more than 200 times for Dortmund in a six-year spell from 2009 to 2015, winning two Bundesliga titles under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp.

Grosskreutz owns the Mit Schmackes gastropub in Dortmund, and he says Haaland can eat there for free after his derby performance.

"Just a great guy. Have a year of free food at Mit Schmackes, bro,” Grosskreutz wrote on Instagram.

Haaland’s finish was an ominous sign for Bundesliga defenders, coming with his supposedly weaker right foot.

“When I had the ball I was waiting for Jadon Sancho to sprint but he didn’t like to sprint so much,” Haaland told the Bundesliga’s official channel after the final whistle.

“So I played it to him and then I was just running, like I do best. He played it perfectly. I’ve been training my right foot, so it’s good to get a goal with that foot.”

Haaland was giving his post-match interview alongside Manuel Akanji, who scored the opening goal of the game.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen you do a chip,” Akanji noted. “Normally it’s just full power and he hits it in.

“In training he’s in my pocket, easy! No, no of course, he’s a really good striker, especially around the penalty area. You have to stay really close to him otherwise it’s going to be a goal. It’s good to train against good strikers so you can improve in every training session.”

Dortmund have now won three league games in a row without conceding but will return to Champions League action on Wednesday playing catch-up in their group after being beaten by Lazio in their opening match.
