Borussia Dortmund declares Sebastian Haller has months of football-free time ahead of him. His testicular tumor has been deemed “cancerous” by Borussia Dortmund, and he will now be receiving chemotherapy.
The tumor news for Haller is worse than anticipated. He has cancer, and as a result, he won’t be playing football for the foreseeable future, according to a statement released by Borussia Dortmund.
“The utmost care is now being given to Sebastian. Recovery prospects are excellent. Our thoughts are with him during this trying time, and we wish him and his family much courage and hope.
We kindly request that the media and supporters understand that we will not be disclosing any additional medical information about Sebastian Haller’s treatment, either today or in the upcoming months, beyond what has already been disclosed “, stated Dortmund’s sporting director Sebastian Kehl.
He was acquired by Dortmund from Ajax at the beginning of July for a sum in excess of 30 million euros. On the other hand, they revealed on July 19 that he had “testicular cancer,” about which more details are now accessible.
“The initial step has been completed. Borussia Dortmund and the entire medical staff deserve praise for how well they cared for me “, Haller stated in a post to his social media accounts.
Dortmund will now need to act quickly to find a replacement for the Ivorian. On August 6, Borussia Dortmund will play Bayer Leverkusen in the league opener.
