Erling Haaland shows off his insanely muscular legs in Borussia Dortmund injury update

Erling Haaland missed Borussia Dortmund's Champions League clash with Lazio after suffering a muscle injury

Posted Friday, December 04, 2020 by

Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland has offered an update on his fitness after missing the Bundesliga side's 1-1 draw with Lazio in the Champions League.

Dortmund boss Lucien Favre told Sky Germany ahead of the game that Haaland would be out of action "until early January" with a muscle tear.

"Erling will not play until early January. Maybe he played too much," Favre said. "He was injured in training. We initially thought it was not that bad. We cannot change it."

On Thursday, Haaland took to social media to give fans an update on his injury, writing: "Good news! Spoke with my doctors. Back soon."

The 20-year-old also shared a snap, showing off his insanely muscular legs.

Without Haaland, Dortmund were able to secure their spot in the last 16 but Favre was left fuming after Lazio were awarded a controversial penalty.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic went down in the box after minimal contact from Nico Schulz and the referee pointed to the spot.

Ciro Immobile stepped up and dispatched the penalty, earning Lazio a point.

Speaking after the game, Favre told Sky Germany: "We had our chances to score the second goal. Then we concede an unnecessary penalty against us, which isn't one.

"That's incredible. That's theatre, he is in a swimming pool. He exaggerates. But we are through to the next round. That's the most important thing."

Dortmund also suffered another injury scare during the match to Mats Hummels.

However, Dortmund director Michael Zorc is hopeful the knock is not too serious, saying: "I spoke to him briefly, we hope it was just a knock on his foot.

"We hope that he will be able to recover quickly and that no ligaments have been damaged. We have a few [injured] players on our hands and we hope that he will be able to play again this weekend."
