Should Erling Braut Haaland (20) start to get bored and give up football, he always has the music.
In a great interview with
the Norwegian football comet talks about the support from the family, the choice of route, why it had to be Borussia Dortmund and what will happen if football becomes boring – without the latter seeming to be a problem for a while …
– The day football is not fun, I stop. Then there will be no point in continuing. Therefore, I try to have as much fun as possible on the field, says the 20-year-old, who ravaged Norway and scored two goals last international.
Haaland believes he himself has never had trouble keeping his legs firmly planted on the ground.
– It’s about the family and where I’m from. There will never be a problem – even if things have gone fast. I like that pace, he states in the interview with Soccerbible.
After the transition from Salzburg to the big football scene in Borussia Dortmund in December last year, the 20-year-old has received plenty of headlines for his brutality in front of goal and precise finishes from all sorts of positions.
That he ended up in Dortmund on a 4.5-year contract was basically an easy choice for Jærbuen. Haaland has previously said that he felt wanted. In the interview, he talks warmly about the support from the family, from the father, (Alf-Inge Håland), the mother (Gry Marita Braut) and the siblings.
And had Haaland not been so good at “talking with his legs”, he would have tested the music church.
– Then I would be a rapper. I have to be honest, says Haaland and laughs well.
– Hopefully one day I will have a song at the top of the lists in Norway. We have a group in Flow Kingz. And I’m “Ling,” the 20-year-old chuckles.
Until then, he is the “Savior” – the Savior – in Germany.
Then we’ll see how it goes with «Ling».
