Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Holland said the Bundesliga club was pressuring him to decide on his future, as the Norwegian striker was attracting interest from many of Europe’s top clubs.
The 21-year-old, who has scored 21 goals this season, joined Dortmund from Salzburg in 2020 and established himself as one of the continent’s most important strikers.
“I have not wanted to speak in honor of Dortmund for the last six months, but now the club is pressuring me to make a decision,” said Holland, who scored twice in Dortmund’s 5-1 win over Freiburg in the Bundesliga last night. , Said Norwegian broadcaster Viaplay.
“All I want to do is play football,” he added. But they are pressuring me about my future which means I have to decide soon. That’s what they want, and that means things are going to happen now. ”
Holland, whose contract with the German club runs until 2024, added that he prefers to focus on football rather than be distracted by talking about his future, before playing many games with Dortmund, who are three points behind league leaders Bayern Munich.
“We’re in the middle of a difficult period with a lot of games,” Holland said. I have said from the beginning that I want to focus on football because it makes me my best. But I can’t do that now. ”
