“Young players with a steel mentality. Haaland’s quality is top-notch.”
1NEWS – Sometimes and even often, the fans act unnaturally when their favorite club is in an unfavorable condition: from starting to sing racist songs, shouting nonsense, lighting flares, also throwing food and drink bottles.
Those kinds of things are done by the fans and certainly not worth emulating. Football is sportsmanship and gracefulness. And such things are mirrors of the opposite.
And the club or player that is needed like that usually has its own attitude. Either dissolve in emotions or become calm in the middle of a wave.
And in that regard, Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland and his team-mates responded in an extraordinary way to what the Bayern Leverkusen fans did in Dortmund’s 4-3 win yesterday this afternoon (11/9/2021).
Where Leverkusen fans threw bottles of canned drinks and so on.
That moment came when Haaland, who scored two goals in that match, one of which and the most decisive was a penalty shoot-out with 13 minutes remaining before half-time.

With full joy, of course Haaland and his teammates celebrated the goal, but the unsportsmanlike and utterly commendable action shown by the Leverkusen fans, Haaland was pelted with plastic cups, a kind of beer bottles, just as the Norwegian was celebrating with his team-mates. his team towards the Leverkusen fan stands.
However, the 21-year-old did not let the hatred overtake him and instead mocked the home fans by pretending to drink from one of the bottles that landed at his feet.

His Dortmund team-mate and England starlet Jude Bellingham was also caught on camera picking up a thrown bottle and aiming at him.
Haaland’s action was very similar to that of Declan Rice, who celebrated Raheem Sterling’s opener for England against Hungary during the international break in a similar fashion.
The Norwegian striker’s two goals proved to be decisive for Marco Rose’s men. After falling behind early to Florian Wirtz’s effort, pulled things back to level with a towering header just before half-time.
Goals from Julian Brandt and Raphaël Guerreiro took the game to 3-3 and into the last minute, with Haaland’s spot-kick ensuring the game went to BVB.
Haaland and his team-mates have enjoyed a great start to the new season. They currently sit in 3rd place, with Haaland already scoring 5 goals to his name.
