Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland says his team will need to equal Bayern Munich’s ferocious intensity if they are to attain his target and win the Bundesliga.
Although their current record is definitely no disgrace, it was not enough to bring a significant obstacle to Hansi Flick’s hand.
Haaland himself also admits this is something that would need to improve if the distance is to be effectively bridged.
“We have the ability to be champions so it’s not enough to communicate alone,” he told Sport Bild. “Our incredible quality has distinguished Bayern.
“In the second half of the season we have to carry on improving and we want to be even more competitive next year.”
