Very special day for Erling Haland. This Saturday, the striker makes his last official appearance as a player of Borussia Dortmund. For this reason, the club prepared a significant tribute for the athlete who, starting next season, will defend Manchester City of the Premier League from England.
Minutes before the whistle that marks the start of the commitment against Hertha Berlin on date 34 of the Bundesliga, the last of the 2021-2022 campaign, the scorer stood on one side of the field. The ‘Cyborg’ received a painting with an inscribed message: “Thank you Erling!”This was accompanied by a postcard from him celebrating one of the many conquests that excited the fans.
Likewise, Haaland carried a bouquet of flowers in his hands, another of the details delivered by the high command of Borussia Dortmund. In fact, the main characters of the German entity accompanied the international with Norway in that space prepared to share with the fans.
The response from the fans of the “Yellow Wind” was immediate, as they chanted the attacker’s name at all times. Undoubtedly, a great show of gratitude for a footballer who gave his best from the first moment and who leaves with pleasant memories of everything he experienced.
On December 29, 2019, the ‘BVB’ made official the hiring of the 21-year-old ‘9’ from Red Bull Salzburg. His debut with the yellow jersey occurred on January 18 of the following year. The letter of introduction was one of the best because he debuted with a hat-trick against Augsburg and this was a harbinger of things to come.

In that period, Erling scored a total of 85 goals, distributed 19 assists in a total of 89 official matches at local and international level. He leaves Borussia with the 2020-2021 German Cup title in a 4-1 victory against Leipzig. That day he scored a brace.
