The Ivory Coast striker who joined the German team this summer from Ajax will be out for several months to recover from the testicular tumor.
Borussia Dortmund has announced that the tumourr against which Sébastien Haller (28 years old) is fighting is malignant, so the striker will have to undergo chemotherapy treatment that will keep him out for several months.
The Ivorian, one of the great signings of the summer for the ‘German’ team, underwent surgery this week after the detection of a testicular tumour, but after the biopsies it has been clarified that he is a malignant type, requiring chemotherapy.
On July 19, the German team reported through a statement that their player suffered from testicular cancer. A few days later he received his first treatment and seemed confident to overcome this situation: “The first step has been taken. I thank Borussia Dortmund and the entire medical team for their exceptional treatment of me.” He said
After this bad news, Borussia Dortmund will have to comb the market in search of a forward to make up for Haller’s loss, since they only have the 17-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko in their ranks and on August 6 they have the first game of Bundesliga against Bayer Leverkusen.
Malignant tumors are cancerous. They develop when cells grow uncontrollably. If the cells continue to grow and spread, the disease can become life threatening.
