Transferred to Borussia Dortmund to fill the space left empty by Erling Haaland, Sebastian Haller is experiencing one of the most difficult situations in his life, as he has been forced to leave the gathering with the Yellows for health reasons.
The former Ajax striker informed the medical staff on Monday morning that he was not feeling well, and after a series of tests, the reason was revealed. The 28-year-old suffers from testicular cancer and in this form must undergo a detailed treatment to fight against the evil in his body.
So, the player has received all the support of the German club that will stand by him in this difficult moment while waiting for him to return strong to the field, while in a reaction the Dortmund club has asked to respect the privacy of the footballer from the Ivory Coast and that as soon as there are new ones, they will be made public.
Meanwhile, in a reaction to the media, the sporting director of the Germans, Sebastian Kehl, said that they are shocked by the results of the analyses. “It was shocking news for us and the player. The entire Dortmund family wishes Haller a speedy recovery and a speedy return. We will do everything possible to ensure that he receives the best possible treatment”, stressed Kehl.
In the last season, Haller was one of the most outstanding attackers of the season in Europe, as with the Ajax jersey he managed to score 47 goals (11 of them in the Champions League) in 66 appearances, while with the Archers he won the championship title twice and in the year that just ended was also announced as the best scorer of the Eredivisie.
