Borussia Dortmund boss Marco Rose has revealed that a hip flexor injury will rule out talisman Erling Haaland for the next few weeks.

The striker only returned to action in last weekend’s win over Mainz after a muscular problem saw him miss three games for Rose’s side.

However, the 21-year-old, who has scored 13 goals in 10 appearances across all competitions this season, is now set for another spell on the sidelines. 

Addressing reporters ahead of Dortmund’s trip to Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday, Rose said: “Erling Haaland won’t play and will be absent for a few weeks with a hip flexor injury.

“Haaland has, of course, been down. He was happy to be back and still felt really good after the Mainz game.”

Rose confirmed that Thomas Meunier and Nico Schulz will also be absent this weekend through injury.

Haaland provided fans with an update on Friday. Posting to his 1.3 million followers on Twitter, he said: “Time to focus on my recovery, I’ll be back stronger.”

Dortmund are second in the Bundesliga with 18 points from their opening eight games, just one point behind leaders and reigning champions Bayern Munich.
