Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has backed teammate Jadon Sancho to shine for the club this season as the new Bundesliga prepares to resume.
With the winger confirmed to stay at the club for another season and how he has been good during the pre-season, Haaland believed he will be important for the German side this coming Bundesliga season.
“I think he has been very good throughout the whole pre-season,” Haaland while speaking in an interview with Viaplay Fotball on twitter.
“He will be an important player for us this season.”
“That’s not something that I am involved in,” he replied when asked about the United rumours.
“Those in charge are responsible for that. I am not going to comment too much on that. But if he stays, I’ll be very happy, because he is both a good friend of mine and a hell of a player.”
Haaland is also looking forward to the new season himself and will look to continue his impressive form in the Bundesliga and will also do all he can to help his side will the Bundesliga title this season.
Dortmund will play Borussia Monchengladbach this Saturday in an encounter that promises to be a tough one.
