    Sebastien Haller’s stepped up his footballing comeback on Tuesday after coming off the bench in Borussia Dortmund’s 5-1 friendly win against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

    The Ivorian arrived in Germany in July 2022 following a stellar couple of seasons at Ajax. But shortly after signing for BVB, doctors discovered a testicular tumour and he was sidelined indefinitely to undergo treatment.

    Haller’s rigorous routine sometimes left him unable to get out of bed, but he was finally able to make his return to Dortmund training last week and has now featured in a friendly against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

    The 28-year-old replaced teenage sensation Youssoufa Moukoko for the final 15 minutes of the match in Marbella, clapped onto the pitch by the few hundred spectators in attendance at the Ciudad Deportiva La Dama de Noche.
