Dortmund wonder striker, Erling Haaland has made shocking claims of not being 100% fit, despite netting 7 goals in his first 3 games for the Yellow and Black side.
Haaland has netted the highest number of goals in first three games as a Bundesliga player than any other but still yet insists he hasn’t gotten back to fitness.
Coming in mostly as substitute for Dortmund, Haaland has managed to continue his scoring spree he began back at Salzburg after overcoming a knee injury he sustained last month.
“It was pretty tough today, but it was also nice to play from the start, I have to get even fitter, I am still not 100 per cent,” Haaland told Skysports.
The 19-year-old made the switch to Bundesliga to join BVB after turning down offer from Manchester United who were desperately in need of a striker.

Guess he really made the right choice as he has already began finding Bundesliga a place as suitable as home, with his perfect self-introduction during his first two games as a substitute.
First was his hat-trick off the bench against Augsburg before netting another double against Koln also as a substitute, likening to similar features of Paco Alcacer who did always net as a substitute for Borussia Dortmund.
Union Berlin was his first start for the BVB and he didn’t leave the pitch unannounced as he added more 2 goals to his tally, extending the wonder surrounding his name.
While the 19-year-old goalscorer prepares to net more goals when his new side faces Paris Saint German for a Champions League Clash, he has to first alarm his threats for the game by netting against DFB-Pokal opponents, Werder Bremen on Tuesday, Bayern Leverkusen on Saturday before finally Home game against Eintracht Frankfurt.
