As reported by Bild, Sébastien Haller will return to training for Borussia Dortmund in January after recovering well for his latest operation following a testicular cancer diagnosis in July.
It’s suggested that not only will Haller do strength and conditioning training, but he could also do some light ball work as he looks to return to full fitness.
Haller (28) joined Borussia Dortmund for €31m from Ajax but it yet to kick a ball in a competitive fixture for Die Schwarzgelben. The French-Ivorian complained of feeling unwell during BVB’s pre-season training camp and upon examinations, it became known that he had a testicular tumour.
Although Haller is reportedly returning to training in the new year, there is no expectation on when the former Eintracht Frankfurt and West Ham forward will return in a match environment – those at the club don’t want to put any pressure on the attacker.
Haller, upon invitation from FIFA, attended the World Cup in Qatar.
