Borussia Dortmund boss Edin Terzic has claimed that his team have not been affected by Mino Raiola’s public courting of Erling Haaland’s suitors.
Super agent Raiola and Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, made a highly-public trip to Spain last week to meet with Real Madrid and Barcelona, with reports claiming he subsequently travelled to England in a bid to meet the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.
Dortmund and City are set to face in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday.
And speaking ahead of the game, Terzic said he is more focused on the impact Haaland can have on his side rather than what the forward’s agent and family members are doing.
“Personally it has no impact on me because I can’t stop Mino Raiola and Alf-Inge from travelling,” he said.
“So it’s up to them. They’re grown-ups and can choose whatever they want to do. I can just have an impact on Erling and we are happy to have him in our team.
“He’s back with us since last Thursday, when he came back from Norway, and the feeling that we had from the start was that he was very happy to see us and we’re very happy to have him around.
“He’s a lovely guy and I think his qualities are well-known all over the world. We’re proud and happy that he is part of our team.”
