Bundesliga: Bold dreams grow around new Dortmund arrival Haller

The former Ajax striker is facing high hopes as a successor to Norwegian goal-machine Erling Haaland.

“Our goal?” He asked in the blink of an eye and responded to applause from fans and club officials.

“We want to make it to the top and finish first,” the French-Ivorian continued.

He said the club is moving towards bigger things.

Haller’s confident approach follows Black and Yellow’s intense efforts to raise the quality of his squad after losing Haaland to join Manchester City. Xinhua report.

The striker’s balance can tell the story for the Dutch side as 47 goals and 17 assists in 66 games speak for themselves.

New arrivals such as Niklas Sule (Bayern), Karim Ademi (Salzburg), Nico Schlotterbeck (Freiburg) and Salih Ozcan (Cologne) are only starting points for Dortmund’s optimism.

The club has stepped up efforts to sign German international David Raum from Hoffenheim. The full-back is one of the Bundesliga’s shooting stars ready to meet the highest standards.

Succeeding in the first season without Haaland became crucial for the 2012 German champions as the club suffered disappointing setbacks in previous years.

New arrivals such as Haller are meant to enhance the team’s internal competitiveness. While Schlotterbeck and Sule raise the defense to a higher level, Dortmund’s front line is well equipped to secure a turnaround.

When it comes to the high rate of efficiency in the box, Haller comes to mind as he scored 45 percent of his chances by scoring.

The Dutch league’s top scorer (21 goals) in 2021-22 has become the club’s most expensive investment. With the club claiming to have signed the best possible coach in the person of Edin Terzik comes a no-cost policy.

The Dortmund-born manager like no other stands for absolute commitment when it comes to club identity.

The 39-year-old created unprecedented excitement by demanding players, officials and fans to “stay hungry like never before”.

“Let’s be more successful and work harder than ever and celebrate as loud and intense as ever.”

Optimism seems to have caught up with Hans-Joachim Watzke, as the club’s CEO predicted Bayern’s dominance was going to break sooner or later.

“Things like this are inevitable because we saw it happen with Paris and Juve,” he said, adding that Bayern are no exception.

The 63-year-old praised the German national league as a well-oiled league providing enthusiasm. “The only thing left is to change the team at the top,” he said after Bayern’s 10th national title in the series.
