Dortmund striker Sebastian Haller has received bad news. During the examination, a tumor in his testicle was discovered in the Ivorian attacker. “We will do everything in our power to ensure that he receives the best possible treatment,” Dortmund said.
Sebastian Haller has just made the move from Ajax to Dortmund, bringing the striker in as successor to Erling Haaland. During training camp with his new club, he felt unwell on Monday, after which he underwent an extensive medical examination.
During those examinations, doctors diagnosed a Haller’s tumor in the testicle. Dortmund says Haller will undergo additional tests at a specialized medical center in the next few days.
“This news came as a shock to Sebastian and all of us,” sporting director Sebastian Kell told the club’s website. “The entire Dortmund family wishes him a speedy and complete recovery. We hope to be able to hug him again soon.”
“We will do everything we can to make sure he gets the best treatment possible.”
