If we improve compared to last year, we also have a great chance of holding something in our hands in the end.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Erling Haaland is backing teenage sensation Youssoufa Moukoko to break through the ranks at Borussia Dortmund as he warned Bundesliga opponents to be weary of the emerging talent. Norwegian striker Haaland turned 20 in July and has already established himself among the top marksmen in the German topflight. His 13 goals in 15 Bundesliga games since arriving in mid-season from Salzburg came amid a overall tally of 44 goals in 40 appearances, split between the two clubs. Cameroon-born striker Moukoko has played for Germany at under-16 level and has also appeared for Dortmund in the Under-19 Bundesliga and the UEFA Youth League.Haaland, quoted in the Westfalische Rundschau newspaper, suggested he would rather keep pressure off the prodigy.“But it’s hard when he’s that good,” Haaland said. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 15-year-old that good.”Dortmund have stated their expectation that Jadon Sancho will stay at the club next season, amid strong interest from Manchester United.They are looking to build a side to challenge Bayern Munich, and the emergence of Moukoko in the coming seasons could be important. It means it will be Haaland to whom Dortmund look for their chief goal threat in the new campaign, but youngster Moukoko could also have a part to play. Moukoko is 15 and has been a revelation at youth level, while also training with the Dortmund first team. He is with the Dortmund squad this week at their training camp in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, and will be eligible to play senior football when he turns 16 on November 20. Haaland said: “He’s a lot better than I was when I was 15. He trains at Borussia Dortmund and keeps up. I was in my home club, Bryne FK, when I was 15. You can’t compare that.” Advertisementlast_img read more

Ashes 2019: Injured paceman Olly Stone ruled out of Lord’s Test

first_imgLuckless England paceman Olly Stone has been ruled out of the second Ashes Test because of a reoccurrence of a back injury.Stone, 25, impressed with the ball on his Test debut against Ireland last month but missed out on a place on the side to face Australia in the Ashes opener at Edgbaston. He flew home from England’s tour of the West Indies earlier this year because of a bone stress injury to his lower back and has suffered another setback.Warwickshire revealed the paceman will be out for two weeks with another lower back issue on his left side that he sustained Tuesday in training at Edgbaston.Sport director Paul Farbrace said: “It’s really disappointing for Olly that he’s been ruled out of action for such an important two weeks of cricket because of a reoccurrence of his back injury. “At the moment there’s a bit of inflammation, but he will undergo a scan later this afternoon [Wednesday] so that we know the full course of treatment that he can undertake with the club’s medical team and with the support of the ECB.”In the meantime, he needs to rest up before he can get his body strong again and ready to deal with the demands of being a fast bowler.”Jofra Archer is set to make his Test debut at Lord’s next week after James Anderson suffered a recurrence of a calf injury on day one of England’s loss in Birmingham.last_img read more
