In the Borussia Dortmund jersey, Erling Haaland seamlessly ties in with his outstanding previous season. The 20-year-old Norwegian seems to have no limits. Lothar Matthäus is also raving about the BVB youngster – and may see him at Bayern at some point.
“At his young age, Haaland is a striker like I have never seen him live before,” said Matthäus in an interview with “Sport1”. “This goal quota at the age of 20, this force, this passion, this energy, also the quality,” added the German national record player.
Matthew even trusts the attacker to make the big hit. “With Kylian Mbappé he can follow in the footsteps of the other great world footballers of the last 13 or 14 years.”
In addition, the 59-year-old believes that Haaland can one day be as good as Robert Lewandowski.
The Pole moved to FC Bayern in the summer of 2014 and has been setting new standards ever since. With 262 goals in 342 Bundesliga games, the 32-year-old has long been the most successful foreign goalscorer in the history of the German House of Lords. In general, only two players top this yield. In 2020/21 it even seems possible that the five-time top scorer could set the goal record of “Bomber” Gerd Müller (40 goals).
That’s why Haaland is not yet playing for Bayern
Due to Lewandowski’s undisputed exceptional position, Matthäus is certain that Haaland will not land in Bayern’s lap anytime soon. “Lewandowski is currently in shape, Haaland too and as long as Lewandowski is playing at Bayern, I don’t think Haaland will come,” said the former world footballer, who thinks little of a Haaland / Lewandowski double, “because they would take away each other’s strengths “.
For this reason, Haaland did not switch to FC Bayern, although this should have been interested.
However, Matthäus considers a farewell Haaland from BVB as decided. The attacker will not serve the Black-Yellows for life. He will look for bigger clubs, he will get a higher income. If he stays in the Bundesliga, there is only one step for him: FC Bayern.
The prerequisite is therefore that Lewandowski vacates the space. The Pole’s contract ends in 2023, Matthäus rules out a sale. “He will end his great career in Munich.”
