Borussia Dortmund striker, Sébastien Haller has returned to training after undergoing surgeries and chemotherapy to treat a testicular tumour discovered in July.

 

The forward received the shocking news in July after joining the German club for £29million on a four-year deal and required chemotherapy to treat cancer – and the 28-year-old eventually had two operations as part of his treatment.

“Happy New Year to all! And it’s off to a great start for me because it means getting back on the field,” the 28-year-old Ivory Coast international wrote on Twitter, posting images of himself working out at the gym. “2022 wasn’t the easiest year but it prepared me for all the new challenges that 2023 will bring.”

In a video message posted by Dortmund Haller said: “I’m finally back. It was not that easy but with your support it was better and easier to do, so I am just looking forward to seeing you in the stadium for some victories.”

Dortmund signed Haller for an initial €31m in July after he scored 34 goals last season for Ajax. The German club said Haller would be “carefully introduced” back into the team.

 

Dortmund are sixth in the Bundesliga, nine points behind the leaders, Bayern Munich, and resume their season on 22 January.
