Haller “few months away” from playing despite positive tumor recovery

After joining Dortmund as Erling Haaland's replacement from Ajax, the French striker was diagnosed with a tumor this month after he complained that he does not feel well while training in Austria.

After undergoing surgery to remove a tumor, the former


striker has given a positive update on his recovery.

"I walk every day and check my body,"

Sebastian Haller




"I haven't lost that much after two weeks. I'm even at the same level as a few months ago. That's a good sign and I hope it stays that way. I feel very well.

"Let's just say now is not the best time to take that step, because it will take me a few months.”


However, the former

West Ham

striker says he's "a few months" away from even considering a return with his new side,

Borussia Dortmund

. He added:

"The important thing is that I don't lose too much muscle mass. I have to stay fit, and a month before I return on the field I will do some work with the ball again. Now the most important thing is that my body feels good.

"My first goal is to be back on the field, to play for [Dortmund] and score my first goal. That will be a beautiful and emotional moment."

Despite the absence of their €33m summer signing,


enjoyed a good start to the season by winning three games out of their four matches. They will next face


on Friday at Westfalen Stadium.
