Borussia Dortmund winger, Thorgan Hazard has jokingly called out his teammate, Haaland for scoring more than he creates assist for others to score goals. The Belgian winger claimed that Haaland goal-scoring charm is second to none, however, he should endeavor to also improve in creating goal chances too.

Erling Haaland is known for scoring goals, but he did something different in their last match against Borussia Monchengladbach, he set Thorgan Hazard for the early goal which gave them a 2-1 win over their city rival. Haaland’s goal assists to Hazard is his second assist since he joined the team in January, whereas, he has been seeing the back of the net more often.
Thorgan Hazard has suggested that the Norwegian striker needs to be more creative in creating assist as much as he scores goals. Quoting the words of Hazard, “I think Haaland needs to give assists, he scores too much,” Hazard told Sky Sports Germany jokingly after the game.
“Sometimes it’s good also to give assists. Last time I gave him one, so now it’s okay, it’s 1-1. And next time I will give him one again.”
It could be recalled that the game was Hazard’s first match against his former side after he joined the Borussia Dortmund in the summer. The 26-year-old winger felt apologetic about his outstanding performance against this former employer as his goal gave his new team an early win over their opponent. While he was speaking about his astonishing performance against his former team, Hazard said: It’s always special, this is my first time coming back here, and I had a very good moment here. I love everybody, but I’m sorry, I play for Dortmund now and I have to defend my colors.”
