Erling Haaland’s latest muscular injury has caused concern at Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund uncovered on that Monday they are concerned about the extent of the injury to star striker Erling Haaland as they await the results of further medical examinations. The 21-year-old Norway star has scored 23 goals in 21 matches for Dortmund this season. Be that as it may, after scoring the opening goal in Saturday’s 3-2 win at Hoffenheim, Haaland crashed to the turf after a run and was left clutching his groin before being subbed. On Monday, the exact nature of the injury and the length of his absence were still unknown.

“On Sunday and Monday Haaland underwent comprehensive examinations,” the Bundesliga club said in a statement.

“According to the medical report, Haaland is suffering from muscular problems, which require treatment and further examinations in the coming days.”

The Bundesliga has just begun a two-week break and Dortmund need their star forward back as fast as possible.

“We wish that Erling will be free of symptoms as soon as possible and do what he loves to do most: score goals for Borussia Dortmund,” the statement added.
