Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre injures himself celebrating Erling Haaland's winner vs Fortuna


Erling Haaland was the hero as Borussia Dortmund kept their faint Bundesliga title hopes alive with a 1-0 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday.

The 19-year-old striker came off the bench to score in the 95th minute as Dortmund secured a vital three points.

The result means that Bayern Munich will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the trophy.

Dortmund struggled for 94 minutes of the match, until Haaland popped up in the final seconds to head home from Manuel Akanji's delivery.

The goal takes Haaland's tally for the season to a ridiculous 41 goals.

Dortmund need a miracle to win the Bundesliga but they haven't given up on the season, as evidenced by Lucien Favre's celebration at the end.

The Dortmund boss managed to injure himself celebrating Haaland's winner, raising his hands in the air before clutching his calf in apparent pain.

Stretcher for the manger, please. 


Haaland has made an immediate impression since arriving at Dortmund and his record reads 13 goals in 14 appearances for BVB.

He's now arguably one of the finest strikers in Europe and Favre admitted the young Norwegian "has something special" shortly after his arrival from Red Bull Salzburg at the end of 2019.

“He works for the team, is able to link up with his teammates and he can play," Favre said, per the Bundesliga's website.

"After everything I’ve seen so far I can say this for certain: Haaland will help us. He’s got something special.”

Favre has been proven right. Haaland is incredible.
