Erling Haaland kicked off his season in typical fashion, scoring a hat-trick in his first game of the campaign, and throwing in some bizarre behaviour for good measure.
Haaland scored 41 goals in 41 games in his first full season at Borussia Dortmund, as Dortmund finished third in Bundesliga and won the DFB Pokal.
On Saturday, the German side started their latest campaign, as the defence of their German Cup kicked off against third tier side SV Wehen Wiesbaden.
The Norwegian striker put everyone on notice as he bagged three goals in a 3-0 win for the top tier side, including a 31st minute penalty.
And that's the hat-trick! :tophat:- Premier Sports :tv: (@PremierSportsTV) August 7, 2021

As well as his incredible ability, the 21-year-old is often highlighted for some of his weirder behaviour, including some wonderfully unique interview moments.
Whilst he showed the goals were going to continue, the former Red Bull Salzburg striker also showed that he was going to continue to be a bit odd.
After winning Dortmund's penalty, around the half hour mark, Haaland seemed to 'celebrate' the referee's decision with a push up as he got himself back to his feet.

There has been plenty of talk about the striker's future this summer, with Chelsea heavily linked as they attempt to add a forward for their Premier League title push.
However it looks like Haaland will be staying at Dortmund this summer, before his £75 million release clause kicks in this time next year.
Instead it looks like Chelsea will sign Romelu Lukaku, a move that could be done in the next couple of days after it was revealed the clubs had done a deal.
If Haaland continues the season how he's started it then next year will be a hell of a battle to try and sign him.
