Erling Haaland 'unlikely' to return from injury before Christmas, according to his father

Erling Haaland is not expected to make his return from injury before Christmas, according to his father and agent.
Erling Haaland's father and agent, Alf-Inge Haaland, has revealed his son is 'unlikely' to make his return from injury before Christmas.



"He's doing relatively well considering the situation, but he'll be out for a little while," Alf-Inge Haaland told Norwegian broadcaster TV 2 of his son's current hip flexor injury.

"It would be a bonus if he gets some games before Christmas, but it's rather unlikely."

The injury has kept Haaland out of Dortmund's last four games in all competitions. The Norwegian forward has scored 13 goals in 10 matches this season.
