Haaland: ‘We must match Bayern’s consistency to become champions’

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland says he and his team must improve their consistency if they want to challenge Bayern Munich for the title next season. The Norwegian international joined Dortmund in January and has since then impressed by scoring 13 times in just 15 Bundesliga appearances.

However, Dortmund’s performances in the league weren’t that great as they lost four of their last 17 games in the season to finish 13 points behind champions Bayern. Haaland is aware that Dortmund will need to become more consistent if they ever want to match the performances of Bayern in the Bundesliga.

“We have the quality to become champions but talking alone is not enough,” the Norwegian forward told Sport Bild . “Bayern have distinguished themselves by their incredible consistency. We have to continue our development in the second half of the season and we want to be even more successful next year.”

Haaland’s performances have already earned him links with clubs like Manchester United and Real Madrid, but he insists he has no desire to leave Dortmund so soon. “I have a long-term contract here until 2024. In any case, it is my big goal to win BVB the title and to celebrate fantastic successes with our fans,” he said.
