Way ahead of schedule: Haaland will play in Dortmund's next game

Erling Haaland's father Alf-Inge stated at the start of the month that it will be miraculous if his son even manages to play in 2021 following his hip injury. A return around Chrismas was the best he hoped for. Yet Erling has boarded the Borussia Dortmund bus on route to Wolfsburg for the weekend's game!

His manager confirmed that the young forward will feature in the game most likely, albeit starting on the bench.

"He's feeling good, but the most we can hope for is a short appearance," explained Rose.

This morale booster comes at a vital time for BVB as the team has just been eliminated from the Champions League following a stunning 3:1 defeat to Sporting Lisbon. Hence, Erling won't be able to play in his favourite competition until next September.

The blemish on Marco Rose's early career came at the time Borussia was almost equal to Bayern Munich on the Bundesliga table. A vital time in the season as the Bavarians will travel to Westfalen on the next matchday to face the contenders. For that game, Haaland will be even more ready.

"If everything goes well, he will also be fit for the Bayern game," stated Rose.

Of course, the Wolfsburg game will influence the morale of the BVB squad for Die Klassiker as the Wolves find themselves sixth on the table. Jude Bellingham will definitely miss the game, however, after taking a knock to his knee in Portugal.

Haaland has managed to play only 10 games this season on the club level, yet bagging in 13 goals and making four assists. His overall record for BVB remains outstanding with 70 goals and 19 games in 69 matches. Recently, his international teammate compared his dietary habits to a bear

    Dortmund can't even play without him. That shows he is so amazing. He needs to move to a better club if he wants Balon Dor and Trophies

    Sadly, In Norway he can't win anything and it looks same situation at Dortmund because as long as Bayern are there, it is hard for different team to win Bundesliga, and in UCL there are many teams ahead of them.
