Borussia Dortmund’s striker Erling Haaland reacted to the death of his consultant Mino Raiola and recognized him with a photo together.
“The best,” wrote the 21-year-old Norwegian on his Instagram account for a heart and to the picture that shows him sitting next to the standing and smiling Italian. Among other things, an autograph card from BVB is on the table in front of them.
Previously, Haaland had scored all three Dortmund goals in the small district derby against VfL Bochum in the small district derby. During the game, Raiola’s family had spread the news of his death on the player’s verified Twitter account.
One of the first to express their condolences to the family had been Haaland’s father Alfie shortly afterwards. “Rest in peace. The best,” he wrote on Twitter immediately after the death message.
Alfie Haaland and Raiola were considered the two main actors in the transfer poker around the BVB star.
BVB coach Rose expresses condolences and criticizes criticism
It is not known whether the Dortmund striker knew about the death of his confidant before the Bundesliga game. His trainer at Borussia Dortmund only learned about the sad news after the end of the game when he was asked about “Bild”.
Marco Rose suffered sharp criticism of dealing with the media. Finally, a false report on the alleged death of Mino Raiola spread on Thursday after the “Gazzetta dello Erling Haaland” reported on it. A Dementi followed via Raiola’s official Twitter account.
“I’m honest. I am now surprised by the information,” said Rose, who added: “I want to say relatively clearly: What has happened in the past few days, how the topic was treated was just disgusting. I can simply Just express my condolences and pronounce a lot of strength for the next few days. And give the time of grief. Otherwise I don’t want to say anything about it. “
Raiola “fought until the end”
The player advisor died in a clinic in Milan, where he has been treated for a long time. “Until the end, Mino fought with the same strength that he had already shown in negotiations to defend his players,” said his family’s statement in English and Italian. “Mino was part of so many players in life and wrote an unforgettable chapter in the history of modern football.”
Raiola was one of the most powerful agents feared by club bosses. Among other things, he also represented stars like Zlatan Ibrahimovic or world champion Paul Pogba.
