Borussia Dortmund striker Sebastien Haller said he will have more surgery as part of his ongoing treatment for the testicular tumor that pushed the player aside.

The 28-year-old Ivory Coast forward underwent surgery earlier this year after discovering the tumor at 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, returned to training with his former team Ajax Amsterdam for a short time last month.

“As planned from the beginning, different possibilities were considered after chemotherapy. I tell you the struggle is not over for me,” Haller wrote in a Twitter post Wednesday.

“I will need surgery to permanently end this tumor that has kept me off the field. I want to thank you all for the messages of support and strength you have given me during this difficult time. I look forward to seeing you all soon.”

German team Dortmund have beaten Haller to a €31m ($32.18m) start in the near-season after the striker scored 34 goals, including 21 in the league and 11 in the Champions League, for Dutch champions Ajax last season. signed for a fee.
