Sebastien Haller

Sebastien Haller signed for Borussia Dortmund for a fee in the region of £30 million in this transfer window. The Ivorian striker has rejuvenated his career at Ajax in Eredivisie after a disappointing spell in London with West Ham United.

The striker scored 47 goals in 65 appearances for the Dutch Champions since January 2021. The striker has impressed with his goal return and earned a move to the German Bundesliga. However, in a turn of events, the move has brought bad news for the player. The player was diagnosed with a testicular tumor at a training camp.

Sebastien Haller underwent surgery to treat the tumor last week. However, the latest examination of the player has revealed that the tumor is malignant. Borussia Dortmund has also confirmed that the player is set to undergo chemotherapy for treatment of the said malignant tumor.

The news has disrupted Borussia Dortmund’s plan for the upcoming season. Sebastien Haller has been brought to the club as a replacement for the departed Erling Haaland. However, the club’s first priority is the well-being and health of the player.

Sebastien Haller has been promised unequivocal support by the Club

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that the player will miss the start of the season as he is set to undergo chemotherapy for the tumor. The player will look to complete his treatment and make a full recovery as soon as possible. However, he is expected to miss several months of the season.

Nonetheless, the club has expressed their unwavering support for the player. While addressing the issue, Director, Sebastien Kehl said that:

“Sebastien will now receive the best possible treatment. The chances of recovery are very good. We wish him and his family a lot of strength and optimism and our thoughts are with him during this difficult time.”

The club further clarified that:

“We ask the media and fans for their understanding for the fact that we will not disclose any medical details concerning Sebastien Haller’s treatment beyond the above-mentioned information, neither today nor in the months to come.”

Hopefully, Sebastien Haller will recover soon and come out of this stronger than ever!!
