'You have to go to a club where the whole club wants you, not just the coach': Erling Haaland's dad reveals that lack of interest from Man United's board was the reason his son opted for DortmundErling Haaland's father has explained why his son signed for Borussia DortmundManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was interested in the strikerHaaland's dad claimed he had to be wanted by the whole club not just the coach He said his son's future could have been uncertain at Old Trafford if Solskjaer left

Erling Haaland's father, Alfe-Inge, has taken a swipe at Manchester United by claiming his son chose Borussia Dortmund because 'the whole club' wanted him.

The Norwegian scored 28 times for Red Bull Salzburg before making the switch to Germany in January.   

A number of clubs were interested in the striker including United who looked to be favourites at one stage with fellow countryman and former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm.

Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland is one of the most exciting forwards in European football 

His father Alfe-Inge claimed his son had to join a team where the whole club wanted him

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was interested in Haaland but his father had doubts about the club

The United boss worked with Haaland at Molde and did not attempt to hide his interest in the forward. 

But the 19-year-old's father admitted he had fears over his son's future if Solskjaer was sacked.

'You never know how it would go in other clubs. It may well have been good, too,' he told TV2. 

'We'll never get an answer to that. But we are very happy with the clubs he has been in.

'You have to go to a club where the whole club wants you, not just the coach. 

'I think that's the most important thing, in addition to how the club has been over the last five or ten years and what direction they've taken.'

Haaland has hit the ground running since joining the Bundesliga side with 12 goals in 11 games.

United remain admirers of the striker and may yet look to lure him to Old Trafford next season. 

Haaland's father played for two of the club's rivals during his own career, Manchester City and Leeds, and was involved in an incident with Roy Keane when the latter claimed to have deliberately injure his opponent during a Manchester derby.

Keane later claimed he had intended to hurt Haaland as revenge for an earlier challenge but did not want to injure him.
