'F*** cancer' – Dortmund hero Sebastien Haller shows off his incredible new boots after battling testicular tumour | The Sun

SEBASTIEN HALLER showed off his incredible new "f*** cancer" football boots ahead of his official Borussia Dortmund debut.

The Ivory Coast striker signed for the Bundesliga club last summer but two weeks later a testicular tumour was diagnosed.

He now has the all clear, though, and is ready to make his long-awaited bow for his new club.

And when he does take to the field, the 28-year-old will do so wearing his customised cleats with a very personal message.

Haller and sponsors Puma shared an Instagram post of the forward at Signal Iduna Park and sliding his foot into his bright orange Ultra Ultimates.

And on the side, the words "F*** CANCER" have been printed in silver, with the "u" replaced by a lightning bolt.

Puma wrote: "The best comeback of the year already."

Haller's wife Priscilla commented in the replies with three fire emojis.

The former West Ham was signed as Erling Haaland's Dortmund replacement but the tragic news has ruled him out of action since his £28million arrival.

Haller returned to Dortmund training at the beginning of January following four rounds of chemotherapy and two operations.
