Ivory Coast and Ajax striker, Sébastien Haller has opened up on his decision to represent the West African country at international level, having been born in France.
Born in Ris-Orangis, in the Paris suburbs, Sebastien Haller started his football career with AJ Auxerre, where he signed his first professional contract.
He moved to Utrecht at the age of 20, first on loan and then permanently. A move to Eintracht Frankfurt followed and after two successful seasons in Germany, West Ham paid £45m for him.
After 13 months with the Hammers, Moyes released him and the rest is history with Ajax.
Referencing his recent performances in the Netherlands, where he has scored 20 goals in 24 league appearances this season, as well as 11 in Eight Champions League games, he was asked whether he now has any regrets having played with the France U21s. “None,” he responded.
“Most of the time, I try in any case to have an approach without any regret,” he said to Canal Tv.
“And really, when I do something, I try to follow it through. I try to go flat-out and I never look back. I wasn’t selected, so necessarily I was in a position to make that decision and I had all the cards in my hand to do so. All those things put together mean I made that decision and I’m happy with it today. He said.
