For the first time in 09 years, a BVB player has been named the best young player under the age of 21. In winning the award, Erling Haaland is following in the footsteps of players such as Mario Götze, Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi.

The 20-year-old beat the likes of Alphonso Davies (FC Bayern) and Ansu Fati (FC Barcelona) to the award. He was joined on the 20-player shortlist by Borussia Dortmund team-mate Jadon Sancho, who came in fourth place.
