Dortmund superstar Haaland wins Golden Boy 2020 Award

The winner of the Golden Boy award for the 19/20 season has been announced… and it is none other than Norwegian wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland

The striker fended off competition from the likes of Alphonso Davies, Ansu Fati, Mason Greenwood and teammate Jadon Sancho to clinch the coveted award offered by Italian newspaper Tuttosport. 

Haaland burst onto the scene with RB Salzburg in the Champions League last season, scoring 8 goals in the 6 group stage matches. 

He then earned a move to Borussia Dortmund in the winter transfer window and scored 13 goals from 15 games for Dortmund. Haaland scored an unbelievable 44 goals in only 40 games last season, across all competitions and all clubs.

He also added 10 assists to his name, which takes his overall goal contributions to 54 from 40 games.

His amazing form has continued this season as well, and the 20-year-old has scored 11 goals in just as many matches across all competitions for Dortmund this season. 

Haaland has been linked with a move away ever since he joined Dortmund. One of the main reasons being the fact that Dortmund is a selling club, and they rarely manage to hold on to their most prized assets. 

Here is what Erling’s father, Alf-Inge Haaland had to say about the transfer speculations as he spoke to SPORT1 during the week:

“When you play well, it’s only logical that big clubs knock on your door, but we’re talking about speculation here.

“At the moment it’s not in Erling’s or my head that another club will be vying for him. We signed a long contract with Dortmund and they have a fantastic team for Erling right now. We don’t want to look any further ahead.”

“I sometimes think he wants to and can assert himself in any league. At the moment, he is happy in the Bundesliga and focused on Dortmund. He just wants to be a better player and doesn’t look too far ahead.”
