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

Postecoglou ‘set to lead Australia’

first_img His appointment will reportedly be confirmed by the end of the week. The 48-year-old’s departure would be a huge blow to the Victory but midfielder Mitch Nichols was putting on a brave face on Tuesday and backed Postecoglou’s assistant Kevin Muscat to replace him. “Yeah it’ll be a massive blow, but I think the club’s got the structure in place with Musky (Muscat) and Daz (Darren Davies, the youth team coach),” Nichols said. “So I don’t think much will change if they do take on the role, but it’s up to the club to decide. “But I think all the boys, they’ve been working at it (under Postecoglou) for a year and a half now, if he does leave not much will change.” Ange Postecoglou will leave his role at Melbourne Victory to become the new coach of Australia, according to reports in the country. Postecoglou was initially placed on a three-man shortlist by Football Federation Australia alongside Western Sydney Wanderers boss Tony Popovic and Central Coast Mariners’ title-winning coach Graham Arnold. But it seems Postecoglou has got the nod to succeed the sacked Holger Osieck and lead the Socceroos to next summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
