Former Germany striker Gerald Asamoah said today, Monday, that the return of striker Erling Haaland from injury means that Borussia Dortmund is a real contender for the title, and this came before the upcoming summit against Bayern Munich in the German Football League “Bundesliga.”
Norwegian star Halland was absent from the game for weeks due to a groin injury, but he returned faster than expected and participated from the bench and scored a goal in the match that ended with Borussia Dortmund’s victory over Wolfsburg 3/1 yesterday, Saturday.
The same stage of the German League witnessed yesterday, Saturday, Bayern Munich’s victory over Armenia Bielefeld, to keep Bayern in the lead by one point against Borussia Dortmund, before the expected confrontation between them next Saturday.
Asamoah said in his article for the German magazine “Kicker”: The fact that Haaland has returned from injury makes Dortmund a candidate for the title much more than it was in the past weeks. You know, and you saw in the Wolfsburg game, the difference Haaland makes.
Asamoah added that Haaland can carry the whole team with his sheer enthusiasm.
He continued: Bayern is currently suffering and the moment seems appropriate for a change at the top of the league table on Saturday.
“But I can say from my experience: As a rule, Bayern are there when it’s important.”
