Erling Haaland joined Borussia Dortmund in January from Red Bull Salzburg, and he is already tearing up the Bundesliga, but former Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes the young striker wouldn’t even start for Bayern.

The former United man insists that Dortmund’s leading marksman is a talented striker, but compared to Lewandowski, he is no fit for Bayern Munich.

Speaking to FourFourTwo, Hargreaves was adamant Lewandowski is still miles ahead of Haaland.

He said: “Haaland is really special – he makes goalscoring look easy, and it’s not.”

“He’s ridiculously good, although Lewandowski’s pretty good too at Bayern – he scored his 40th goal of the season at the weekend.”

“So even if you could add Haaland, he wouldn’t get into Bayern’s team right now, just because of the way they play with one upfront.”

“Bayern don’t really have any weaknesses.”

At Red Bull, Haaland netted 28 goals from 22 outings during the first half of the season and has carried the same scoring form to Dortmund where he has bagged 13 goals from just 12 appearances; his latest being a goal on Saturday on a day that Bundesliga made a return after the coronavirus break.
