I am a man who works hard, who likes to score goals and that loves to play soccer.’I want people to find out what type of player I am. I really don’t need to speak too much; I need people to see exactly how I am… and then they are going to see!’ His Dortmund introduction could be made by Haaland on Tuesday in a fixture from Standard Liege in Marbella.
