Following a diagnosis of a highly rare tumor, Sebastien Haller of Borussia Dortmund would be sidelined for an extended length of time during the 2022–2023 club football season.
Sebastien Haller, the newest addition to Borussia Dortmund and a striker, would be sidelined and out of football for an extended amount of time after being found to have a very unusual tumor.
Sebastien Haller, an Ivorian, was diagnosed with testicular cancer, a highly rare disease that would keep him out of any football-related activities for an unforeseen amount of time.
Dortmund issued a formal statement to certify the player’s condition. According to the statement, Sebastien Haller felt poorly and a testicular tumor was found when he was evaluated.
Sebastian Kehl, the athletic director for Dortmund, also disclosed:
This news today came as a shock to Sebastien Haller and everyone else, The entire BVB family hopes that Sebastien makes a full recovery as soon as possible and that we can give him a hug again soon.
We’ll do everything in our power to ensure that he receives the best possible treatment.
This is a big setback for the team, who just completed his transfer as a replacement for Haaland. Sebastien would be devastated as well, having battled his way back up with Ajax after a miserable stint with West Ham in the Premier League.
