Sebastian Haller has spoken out for the first time since he was diagnosed with a testicular tumour.
The Bundesliga side confirmed the news on Monday evening, July 18, after Haller felt ‘unwell’ in training earlier that day.
In a message on his social media accounts, Haller thanked everyone for their messages of support and insisted he’s determined to ‘come back stronger’.
Haller said: ‘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.’
He also added: ‘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.’
