Sebastien Haller to resume training in January after completing surgery

Sebastien Haller could return to training in January according to reports in Germany.

Borussia Dortmund striker Sebastien Haller could be back training three months after he successfully underwent a second surgery to treat his testicular cancer.

The striker, who joined the German side from Ajax in the summer for £27million, is yet to play a competitive game for his new side following his diagnosis last year.

According to reports, there’s been progress in the Ivorian’s recovery and he has spoken with the club about returning to the field as soon as possible.

Earlier this week, Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder revealed Haller had asked to train with his former club while continuing his rehabilitation with the Eredivisie side.

“He asked us if he could come and train because he was rehabilitating here,” Schreuder said.

“Then it’s of course wonderful that he can be there for a while. He was able to train on a different pitch to help with his recovery.”

Bild reports suggest that Haller will begin strength and conditioning work and could also do some light ball work as he looks to return to full fitness.

Haller scored 47 goals in 66 games for Ajax after joining from West Ham United last year and enjoyed a fine 2021-22 campaign in the Champions League with 11 goals in eight games.
