– He will leave having scored 86 goals in 89 games since joining from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020.

– “It has been nothing but an honour to wear this shirt,” Haaland tweeted afterwards.

– “At [Dortmund] I’ve spent memorable moments, met special people, not to mention a fan base that has been always our extra man on the pitch.

– “I’ll never forget any of this!”

– Haaland, who passed his City medical in Belgium on Monday, will move to Manchester in July after the Premier League leaders activated a 60m euro (£51.2m) release clause in his contract.

– His penalty equalised after Ishak Belfodil’s spot-kick put Hertha ahead before 17-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko struck with a winner in the 84th minute.
