"No. To be honest, no, not like this. But you know, that's how it is, and I'm happy about that," he explained.

Haaland praised the winger as well as Thorgan Hazard and captain Marco Reus for being world class and helping him settle in.

"You know, I've been here one month, but when my team is all so good, it gets easy sometimes to create chances and to play with them, because they're so good.

"The first second I played with Jadon [Sancho], Marco [Reus], Thorgan [Hazard], you know these guys, it just sits direct, and that's how it is with world-class players."

Sancho and Haaland were both on the scoresheet Friday night as Dortmund ran out 4-0 winners over Eintracht Frankfurt.
