The news fell like a cleaver. On July 18, less than two weeks after his transfer for € 30 million from Ajax, Sébastien Haller was diagnosed with a testicular tumor during medical examinations. Very bad news for the man, forced to put his career on hold to heal, and for his club, whose shock must be difficult to take.

Quickly taken care of, the striker underwent surgery at the start of the week and everything went well, as confirmed by Sebastian Kehl, the sporting director of BvB. But today, the German club brings news that is far from reassuring. It is a malignant tumor, therefore more difficult to treat because it can develop unlike a benign tumor. The player has to go through chemotherapy.

Haller absent for several months

“Sébastien Haller (28) will be absent from Borussia Dortmund for several months. Histological findings revealed a malignant testicular tumor. Haller must therefore undergo chemotherapy treatment., says the press release published on social networks this Saturday. The Ruhr club still wants to reassure everyone despite this bad news. The player is fine and has a good chance of being treated.

“Sébastien will receive the best possible treatment. The chances of recovery are very good. We wish him and his family much strength and optimism. Our thoughts are with him during this difficult time.” said Sebastian Kehl in the same press release. “We ask the media and fans to understand that we will not release any medical details regarding Sebastien Haller’s treatment.”
