“I can’t say, I don’t know Haaland a little. We were actually, while I was in Brøndby, close on, we seem though, to get him down, but it went unfortunately not.”

so says Troels Bech in his podcast ‘Bech Behind the Ball’.

In the podcast section ‘Åke Hareide – an everyday life as a coach’ speaks to the former Brøndby-sports director with the departing national coach for the Danish herrelandshold in football about, among other things, the Norwegian stortalent Erling Braut Haaland.

Here mentions Troels Bech, therefore, that the man was allegedly close to download Dortmund-bomberen.

It was in the summer of 2017, Brøndby showed interest in the former Molde player, but the face of B. T. downplaying Troels Bech the interest, he mentions in the podcast.

“We were just like so many others become aware of his great talents, and then we would of course like to have had him down. But it could not be done. He had other plans.”

“General, I will say that I think it is preposterous to comment too much on those who play other places. I note just that we were not more blind, than we could see, he was exceptional, and we had a chat with him and his father. Longer we came not,” says Troels Bech.

The 19-year-old teenagesensation was in February 2017 sold from Bryne to Molde. A year and a half after, in the summer of 2018, slipped he to Red Bull Salzburg in Austria, before he, in January, landed in the German topklub Dortmund. Haaland-the quote in the podcast section with Hareide comes after about a half hour.
