Ale: “The way we lost the league hurt me more than when I found out about cancer”


THE Sebastian Ale had shocked the football world last season, as shortly after his transfer from Ajax to Dortmund he learned that he had a malignant tumor in his genitals and had to undergo chemotherapy.

The international centre-forward fought hard and came out victorious from the most difficult “battle” he had fought in his life, however in an interview he gave to “Bild” he compared the pain he experienced after the diagnosis to the loss of his championship Bunsdesliga in the last match.

It’s true, losing the Bundesliga title in such a way hurt me more than what I felt after the cancer diagnosis. If you are sick you cannot do anything.

You have to accept it and go with it, but we had the title in our hands, it was in our hands“, said initially Hey and continued:

In such a case you have to accept, no matter how painful it is, that you made mistakes and made wrong decisions. Missed opportunities eat you up.

You think about what you could have done better, but I also learned, especially during the illness, not to let the negative things get to me“, were the words of the 29-year-old whose data will… be discussed.

Let’s remember that the Westphalia team wanted the victory in the last matchday at home against Mainz, however they drew 2-2 and the Bayern Munich won the title of German champion.
