Sebastian Haller appears at the Ballon d’Or Awards… Praying for Drogba’s recovery, too
Borussia Dortmund striker Sebastian Haller, who is battling cancer, appeared at the Ballon d’Or awards ceremony. Haller was ranked 13th overall in the Ballon d’Or vote.
Haller, who moved from Ajax to Borussia Dortmund, found a tumor in his body before the season’s opening. It turned out to be a malignant tumor, but it was only 12 days after joining the team. He is currently taking a break from soccer due to his fight against testicular cancer, and is working hard to recover his health by receiving chemotherapy.
Despite not being able to compete, Haller appeared in Paris to participate in the Ballon d’Or Awards. The hair was all washed out by chemotherapy. His trademark beard has disappeared. But Haller spent time with his colleagues with a bright smile.
Haller said in front of reporters, “Everything is good. The reason why I’m here today is because everything is going well. It’s important to attend this kind of event to show you that you’re strong,” he said, informing fans of his condition.
Didier Drogba, the “legendary” who participated in the awards ceremony as a host, cheered Haller separately by sending a message of support. “This gentleman is an example of courage and strength,” Drogba said. Sebastian, the football world hopes you’ll be back on the field soon.” 토토사이트
