Rose pleased with Haaland progress as fitness improves


Germany: Bundesliga

Marco Rose believes Erling Haaland is moving closer towards full fitness.

Borussia Dortmund coach Marco Rose with the progress Erling Haaland has shown after returning from a long spell on the sidelines.

After coming on from the bench against Arminia Bielefeld and Mainz, the 21-year-old could find himself back in the starting eleven versus FC Köln today.

However, speaking ahead of the game, Rose didn’t want to guarantee Haaland a starting spot.

“Erling already looked much more present in Mainz. He’s taking it step by step,” Rose told reporters.

“The important thing is that we keep him healthy. Well see what that means for the Köln game in terms of playing time.”
