Borussia Dortmund striker Sebastien Haller is gearing up for his return to football with boots that have "f*ck cancer" written on them.
  • Haller available for Dortmund
  • Striker wearing special message on boots
  • Ivory Coast star recovered from cancer

WHAT HAPPENED? Haller is expected to be part of the Dortmund squad for Sunday's Bundesliga clash against Augsburg, the first time he will make a league appearance since undergoing treatment for testicular cancer. The striker posted an image carousel on Instagram showing his boots carrying the special message.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Haller has not featured in a competitive for the German team since joining from Ajax last summer. The Ivory Coast international was diagnosed with a testicular tumour in July. However, he did net a hat-trick in a friendly against Basel this month.

WHAT NEXT FOR HALLER? Dortmund coach Edin Terzic has not clarified whether the 28-year-old will be named in the starting XI for Sunday's match, but the striker is on the verge of returning to action.
