BITTER BLOW:Borrusia Dortmund top star sidelined until early 2022 with a hip injury
Erling Haaland’s year is over. The Borussia Dortmund striker has been out of action with an injury, and he’s not likely to return any time soon.
The Norwegian suffered a hip injury and although his recovery time is yet to be confirmed, the signs aren’t positive.
According to German newspaper Bild, the forward will be sidelined until early 2022, which comes as a bitter blow to Dortmund’s Bundesliga chances this season.
“It might well be that his game against Ajax will be his last of the year,” Jan Aage Fjortoft said on Norwegian television.
Haaland had started the season well, scoring 13 goals and assisting four more in just 10 games across all competitions.
