Favre said Haaland was too young to be used as top striker despite convincing everyone about his abilities. The manager comments was “Remember he is just a teen”.
Borussia Dortmund need a good result against Bayer Leverkusen to stand a chance of getting something at the end of the season. Captain Marco Reus spoke about Dortmund’s dream of winning the Bundesliga title at end of the season and Haaland could prove to be their secret weapon.
It appears Lucien Favre is concerned about Haaland as a player and just because he can score crucial goals against oppositions within the short period he has featured for the club.
Haaland have scored in his last four appearances for Borussia Dortmund including a goal during Dortmund loss to Werder Bremen in the DFB POKAL in midweek.
