Stefan Lainer (Mönchengladbach) resumes training after cancer treatment: “I am very happy”


Austrian Stefan Lainer has resumed training at Borussia Mönchengladbach four months after being diagnosed with cancer. “I am very happy that I can once again fully concentrate on football and train with the team,” he said in a statement on the club website on Monday.


The 31-year-old Lainer was told in July that lymphatic cancer had been found. Recently, a final study showed that the therapy followed by Lainer had the desired results. “The lymphatic cancer could be cured,” the club says. “We are incredibly happy and also relieved that Stevie Lainer has won the fight against this disease. This victory makes us very happy,” says sports director Roland Virkus.

The defender will be given “the necessary time to get fully fit again” from his club. Step by step he will take his place back in the selection.

The 31-year-old Lainer has been playing for Gladbach since 2019 and has 38 caps to his name.
