Borussia Dortmund star striker Erling Haaland has named Chelsea boss Frank Lampard as the retired player he would’ve liked to play with, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
Haaland is one of the hottest prospects in world football and several clubs across Europe are monitoring him despite only just securing a £17m move to Borussia Dortmund from RB Salzburg in January.
The 19-year-old striker Haaland was made to answer a number of questions in a live Q&A session with ESPN on Instagram recently.
When he was asked about which retired player he would’ve liked to play alongside, after a bit of thought, the Dortmund ace replied saying: “Frank Lampard”.
Lampard retired from football after becoming Chelsea’s all-time highest goalscorer with 211 goals after which he took up management with Derby County before being appointed as Blues boss last year.
Haaland’s answer sparked excitement from a number of Chelsea fans who began commenting about a potential move for the striker to Stamford Bridge.
The Dortmund striker also picked Virgil van Dijk as the toughest opponent he’s faced in the same Q&A session.
