Sebastien Allet (28, Dortmund) overcame testicular cancer with an indomitable will.
Alle started against Freiburg in the 19th round of the Bundesliga in the 2022-23 season held at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund, Germany on the 4th (Korean time). In the 6th minute of the second half when Dortmund were leading 2-1, Alle scored a header from Rafael Guerreiro’s cross.
It was Alle’s first goal of the season and his debut goal for Dortmund. On this day, Dortmund won 5-1 and moved up to third place in the Bundesliga. It is tied with 2nd place Bayern Munich on 37 points, and narrowed the score gap with 1st place Union Berlin (39 points) to 2 points. 안전놀이터
Dortmund signed Alle from Ajax in the Netherlands last summer. Ale was recruited to replace Erling Haaland, who left for Manchester City, and high expectations were placed on it. His contract period is 4 years, and the transfer fee is 31 million euros (approximately 42 billion won).
But Ale had to leave the team. This is because he developed testicular cancer right after his transfer to Dortmund. In July, the Dortmund club said, “Alle cannot handle the pre-season schedule for the new season. Due to his poor physical condition, he was diagnosed with a detailed diagnosis, and a tumor was found in his testicles.”
After half a year has passed since then, he returned this winter. Alle warmed up by playing against Augsburg, Mainz and Leverkusen at the end of January. In the fourth game after his return, against Freiburg, he scored a header goal and relieved his battle with cancer.
On this day, the soccer boots worn by Ale drew attention. The phrase ‘F*CK CANCER’ was engraved on the left and right sides of the orange soccer boots. True to this phrase, Ale overcame cancer and launched a cool return shot. Dortmund’s home fans roared at Alle’s goal.
It is also World Cancer Day. The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) established February 4 every year as World Cancer Day in 2005.
Alleh, who overcame testicular cancer and made a splendid comeback, said, “I am happy to score a goal on a really special day. Thanks to the support of the fans, he scored a goal in an unbelievable atmosphere. He left a feeling, saying, “Thank you for your support that made it possible to overcome cancer.”
