Borussia Dortmund’s latest signing Sebastien Haller has spoken for the first time since he was diagnosed with a testicular tumour.
The Ivorian took to his official social media accounts on Tuesday, July 19th, 2022, thanking everyone who had wished him well and he promised to come back stronger. Dortmund confirmed the sad news on its official website on Monday, July 18th, 2022 stating that Haller was feeling unwell so he had to be excused from the team’s training session.
I want to thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all these many warm messages received I was very moved to see these beautiful reactions and I even feel like I don’t deserve so much. But I know that thanks to you it will only be one more test on our way. See you very soon in the ground to celebrate our next victories. Thank you all for your many messages of support and affection since yesterday’s announcement. My family and I thank you. I will now focus on my recovery to come back stronger.
Haller was signed by Dortmund to fill in the void which was left by Erling Haaland who has joined Manchester City. The 28-year-old was in fantastic form for Ajax Football Club last season in the domestic league and the UEFA Champions League.
