Borussia Dortmund disclosed on Monday they are worried about the extent of the gouge to superstar striker Erling Haaland as they wait for the reports of further medical examinations.
The star has scored 23 goals in 21 games for Dortmund this season. Nevertheless, following scoring the opening goal in Saturday’s 3-2 victory at Hoffenheim, Haaland slammed to the turf after a sprint and was left gripping his groin prior being substituted.
On Monday, the exact injury and the length of his unavailability were still unknown.
“On Sunday and Monday Haaland underwent comprehensive examinations,” the club stated.
“According to the medical report, Haaland is suffering from muscular problems, which require treatment and further examinations in the coming days.”
Haaland has so far missed ten games in all tourneys this season and Dortmund were eliminated of the Champions League last autumn when he was out of action by a hip injury.
The Bundesliga has just commenced a two-week break and Dortmund want their star striker back as soon 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 appended.
Hypothesizing is wide spreading that Haaland will quit Dortmund at the end of the season as there is reputedly a release clause in his contract, which runs till 2024, which became active at the begining of 2022.
