Who will win the Bundesliga next season?

BVB sports director Michael Zorc: "Erling Haaland will play for us next season"

DFB Cup winner Borussia Dortmund has confirmed the whereabouts of his top striker Erling Haaland (20) beyond the end of the Bundesliga season.

"He will play for us next season," said sports director Michael Zorc on the Sunday before the league game at FSV Mainz 05 im Sky-Interview (the highlights of the game in the video).

The adviser of the young Norwegian had recently ignited again and again. BVB should see it that way, but he himself had a different opinion, Mino Raiola had said in some interviews. Haaland's contract in Dortmund runs until 2024.

BVB managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke had recently defended Haaland's advisor Mino Raiola against criticism. "I think it is sometimes bigoted that people celebrate when Erling Haaland decides for us after flights to Leipzig, Manchester and Dortmund, and it is then perceived as monstrous when Raiola also flies to other cities in his capacity as a consultant" said Watzke in the Sports picture about the advisor to BVB star Erling Haaland.

Haaland will leave Dortmund at some point, admitted Watzke, "just not so quickly." "Of course you can then play ping-pong in public and abuse each other every other day," continued Watzke. "But we know how to assess everything very well, we have a resilient relationship, exchanged all arguments and a clear contractual situation."
