During his time at Borussia Dortmund, Haaland had repeatedly injured himself with the Norwegian selection and dropped out – City wants to avoid that at all costs. Haaland quickly forged a close connection with Pafundi at his new club, which is why he is happy to take the physio with him.

“Erling made the brilliant suggestion that he has a very good therapist”says coach Stale Solbakken, “Of course it’s no coincidence that he comes from Manchester City. But he also works with our other players. He’s not just Erling’s man here.”
