BVB is the perfect place for Erling Haaland
Erling Haaland’s former head coach Alf Ingve Berbsten during his days at Bryne FK in Norway believes that the forward can succeed at Real Madrid. However, now the coach has made it clear that staying at Borussia Dortmund could also be a good option. “I think Dortmund is now the perfect club for Haaland,” Berntsen told reporters. “Erling is only 20 years old and can still develop and improve at BVB. But now, he is also at the level where he can move to the top clubs and be successful. So both options, staying or move, would be right for Erling”. Real Madrid had a strong relationship with Haaland, and Berntsen thinks that the only thing that will get in his way now are injuries. “He could be successful in any squad, including Real Madrid,” Alf stated.
“He will continue to score many more and more goals in the coming years. Only injury can stop him. I think his next club will be a fortunate club”. The coach praised Haaland and those around him for the decisions they made up to this point, with Erling Haaland having been a success at every team so far. “I think the decisions he made have been important for Erling,” Berntsen said. “Bryne FK was a good place for him to grow up and spend his childhood, Molde was a great choice at 16, the same with RB Salzburg at 18, and then Dortmund was another perfect choice. He is playing a lot of minutes at a big club with great quality, and that is very important for him and his development.”
