Rose issues new fitness update on Haaland

Borussia Dortmund coach Marco Rose has revealed that Erling Haaland "still needs some time" to recover from the muscle injury that has kept him out of four games so far.
Erling Haaland hasn't travelled to Glasgow for Borussia Dortmund's Europa League play-off second leg clash against Rangers on Thursday as he continues his recovery from a muscle injury.

Speaking ahead of the game, Dortmund coach Marco Rose has provided a fitness update on the Norwegian star striker, who will miss his fifth consecutive game.

"He is still a bit away from 100 percent. We are in exchange, he tries and does all he can," Rose told reporters.

Haaland resumed team training earlier this week. Whether he will be fit for Sunday's Bundesliga encounter with Augsburg is doubtful.

"He still needs some time. He needs to be pain-free. And we are not there yet," Rose explained.
