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

"I've seen them [the goals] a lot, and when I see them I just want to do it again. So yeah, I've seen it a lot."

Lucian Favre's side have a plethora of young talent at their disposal including English teen Jadon Sancho.

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.

Its seems that Haaland is destined for the top and when he was asked if he finds the hype around him difficult to deal with he said:

"No, it's easy. Why not?"

Do you think Haaland will become one of the best strikers in the world?
