Sebastian Haller Cancer: The Dortmund striker Haller has to be operated on for a tumor

Ivory Coast striker Haller, 28, underwent surgery earlier this year after discovering the tumor during a training camp in July and has been undergoing chemotherapy in recent months. Haller, who previously played for English Premier League club West Ham United, briefly returned to training with former team Ajax Amsterdam last month.

“As planned from the beginning, various options were considered after the chemo. I tell you the fight is not over for me, Haller wrote this in a Twitter post on Wednesday.

“I will have to undergo surgery to permanently remove this tumor which is keeping me off the field. I want to thank you all for the messages of support and the strength you are giving me in this ordeal. I look forward to seeing you all together soon.”

German side Dortmund signed Haller for an initial fee of 31 million euros ($32.18 million) during the close season after the striker scored 34 goals last season for Dutch champions Ajax – including 21 in the league and 11 in Champions League.

Meanwhile, Dortmund said French forward Modeste, who they signed from Bundesliga rivals Cologne on a one-year deal in August to fill in for Haller, had undergone surgery on a problem that had affected him for weeks before the World Cup break. The 34-year-old said in a club statement that he was heading straight for rehabilitation and would return in the new year.
