Borussia Dortmund's Emre Can has praised teammate Erling Haaland for his abilities and mentality.

In an interview on Dortmund's website, Can says he believes the 19-year-old has a big career in front of him.

"Erling has all the qualities of a top striker. He's unbelievably fast, powerful, strong in the air, a good shooter - plus he always knows where the goal is. Not to mention the fact that he's extremely mature for his age," Can said and added:

"Erling is very professional in the way he goes about things. If he keeps this up then he has an unbelievable career ahead of him.

"The two of us talk to each other about how we can improve and how we can best use our strengths to help the team be successful. We think in the same way. We both want success. We drive each other on. Erling has an unbelievable mentality. I really like the way he conducts himself."

Can and Haaland both joined Dortmund in January from Juventus and RB Salzburg respectively.
