DFB-Pokal: Dortmund Emerged Champions

By | May 15, 2021

Borussia Dortmund managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke insists there is no economic need to sell Erling Haaland amid speculation that he will remain in Germany until next year.

Haaland scored twice as Dortmund won the DFB-Pokal final over 4-1 RB Leipzig, with Jadon Sancho also scoring twice.

The title boosts Dortmund’s chances of retaining Haaland’s services, who have been linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Manchester City and Chelsea at the end of the season.

“You always have concerns in my job,” Watzke said.

“We definitely want to stay with Erling next season. You can see the value, you see how committed he is to meeting Leipzig, with great joy.

“Besides we still have it, we only have to win twice more now. We have managed the club strongly for years, when entering the second or third year of the coronavirus, so we have to take out some loans at some point we will pay it back.

“But there’s absolutely no economic need to sell it, no matter whether it’s the Europa League or the Champions League.”
