Striker in Borussia Dortmund,Sebastien Haller, who was diagnosed with testicular cancer in July, announced on Thursday,November 17th, that he will be undergoing surgery.
“As expected from the beginning, different options were considered following the chemo. I announce that the fight is not over for me,” 28-year-old Ivory Coast striker tweeted in French.
“I will have to undergo an operation to finish definitively with this tumour that keeps me away from the pitch.”
The France-born player joined Borussia Dortmund from Ajax in July to help fill the vacuum left by the departure of Erling Haaland to Manchester City over the summer.
A few days after the final signings were done, Haller felt pain and club doctors made the diagnosis.
“We wish you lots of strength, Seb! Stay strong!,” Borussia Dortmund reacted to Haller’s tweet. Ajax and another former club, West Ham, also tweeted their support for the player through his trying time.
