Sébastien Haller resumed group training at Borussia Dortmund on Monday. The former striker of Ajax was sidelined for months after testicular cancer was discovered last summer, but Haller is now close to his return.
Last November, Haller underwent his second operation and since then he has been slowly but surely working towards his return to the football field. On Monday, Haller participated in part of the group training at Borussia Dortmund and continued training on the field for himself. According to, among others The Telegraph it is the intention that Haller will go to Marbella on a training camp with Borussia Dortmund at the end of this week.
That is good news for the former Ajax player, who has been going through a nightmare in recent months. Shortly after Haller exchanged Ajax for Borussia Dortmund, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. To remedy this, Haller underwent two surgeries and chemotherapy. He is now on the mend and hopes to make his debut for Borussia Dortmund after the winter break.
Impressive Champions League campaign
Borussia Dortmund paid about thirty million euros to Ajax for Haller last summer. The French-Ivorian striker succeeded Erling Haaland in Germany, who was sold to Manchester City by Borussia Dortmund. Haller scored no less than 47 goals in 66 matches for Ajax and the attack leader made an impression last season with his eleven goals in just eight Champions League matches.
