Haller back in training at Dortmund after cancer treatment

DORTMUND, Germany (AP) — Ivory Coast striker Sébastien Haller is back in training at Borussia Dortmund after nearly six months away from soccer with testicular cancer. Haller posted pictures Monday of himself training in the gym at Dortmund and says 2023 will be the year he returns to the field. It’s a small but significant step on what remains a long road back to competition for Haller. The former West Ham and Ajax striker needed two operations and a course of chemotherapy. Dortmund says Haller “is set to be gradually introduced to the team.”
