Lucien Favre’s coach expects him to realize the condition of occasional rest. The Borussia Dortmund manager was impressed by Erling Haaland’s attitude towards games and training.
Even though Favre is well attentive to the possible risks of overburdening Haaland, he is not and he acknowledged that to stop the burnout of the former Salzburg hero, another player would have to be brought in for the subsequent season.
“I think everybody knows,” Favre told reporters Monday when asked if he wanted another center-forward as next term backup.
“I think that’s too clear because he’s just 19 years old.”
“It’s normal that when you have an English week, he is sometimes exhausted because he can’t do everything on his own.”
“We have noticed he is still growing, too. Recently he’s been injured two to three times since he came to us. So, we will dose what he does, or it may be risky.”
“He’s got to realize this, because it’s not possible to play three games in a week, sometimes.”
“I like his mentality, he always wants to be there and always win, but he has to make progress too, of course, he’s only 19 and has so much potential.”
