Man Utd manager Solskjaer delighted for Haaland: It's good for Norway!

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted to see Erling Braud Haaland performing well for Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland snubbed United last month to sign for Dortmund, where he scored twice in a 2-1 win over PSG on Tuesday.

Speaking after Thursday's Europa League clash with Club Brugge, Solskjaer said of his countrymen: "I never normally comment on opposition players, but since I've had Erling I'm just delighted for him.

"He's a top boy, absolutely fantastic kid that you want the best for and he's started fantastically with Dortmund, so we just watch him and you know for Norway it's brilliant for us that we have a striker that can score a goal again."
