Borussia Mönchengladbach announced on Monday that right-back Stefan Lainer will return to training following successful treatment for cancer.

The 31-year-old, who was diagnosed with lymphoma in July, has successfully completed the therapy he has been undergoing over the past few months.

"I'm thrilled that I can once again fully concentrate on football and train together with the team,” Stefan Lainer said.

"The last weeks and months were a big challenge. I'm very thankful to have had so much support from my family, my friends, the club and the fans during this period. All this gave me strength.

"In particular, I would like to thank my wife and Dr. Sellmann, who were the most important sources of support during this time."
