In an interview with MDR, former RB Leipzig executive Rangnick talked about the reason why the team missed Haaland. He said: "RB Leipzig missed Haaland because there is no guarantee for him to start."
Rangnick said in the interview: "From what I know about him and his father, the main reason he joined Dortmund is that they can guarantee him a fixed position."
"This is understandable, because Dortmund only had Paco as a center at the time. He was only half the size of Harland and was often injured."
"This is a shame for RB Leipzig. This is the first Salzburg Red Bull player that the team has missed after entering the Bundesliga."
"For Leipzig, it's a pity, he was suitable for us, for our team and our style of play."
"Maybe Sollot of Leipzig will become the second Haaland."
