Haaland's agent reveals he was angry about being subbed as he was chasing the fifth goal

After stirring up quite the mess at Manchester United with Paul Pogba statements, football's most infamous agent Mino Raiola is shaking the Westfalen. Or trying too. Raiola stated that his other client Erling Haaland has been angry because of the substitution made by Borussia Dortmund's manager.

Lucien Favre took out the young Norweigan striker in the 85th minute of the 5:2 victory over Hertha Berlin with the final score settled and Haaland bagging four goals. Yet, Raiola reveals his client was calling him up after the match, to complain angrily.

"He called me right after the game. He was angry! He really wanted to score the fifth goal," revealed Raiola to boast about his client's unique mentality. But also because he is an instigator.

Raiola compared his young client to the famous painting of Edvard Munch - The Scream, as that is the face defenders make when he starts running at them. He also said he reminds him of his most famous client - Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"Haaland is like Ibra when he was 20. He always wants to win, even when he's playing a harmless game like checkers."

Besides revealing that Haaland was upset with Favre's decision, Raiola also stirred up BVB by stating that Haaland will leave to win the Champions League.

"Haaland is doing very well at both Borussia and Dortmund. He wants to win the Champions League. If one day he should leave, it would be not because of the money, but because of his ambition."

Haaland is one of the two U20 players with the highest value.

This season, Haaland is even better than in the last, scoring 17 goals in 14 matches, 10 of which in the Bundesliga and six in the Champions League. Although the powerful striker has suffered an injury that will possibly make him sit out to up to seven games as he is bound to return before 2021.
