Bundesliga: Jean-Paul Boëtius from Hertha BSC after another tumor diagnosis – teammates and coaches in shock


On Thursday (22 September) Hertha BSC won a friendly game at the NOFV Oberliga side 1. FC Frankfurt 8-0. But the game was overshadowed by reports in the morning that Hertha professional Jean-Paul Boëtius will be out until further notice.

The reason is very sad: the 28-year-old newly signed from Mainz 05 was diagnosed with a tumor in the testicle during a urological examination on Wednesday. The Rotterdam native will perform on Friday.

Hertha BSC fit for No. 1. FC Frankfurt (Oder) - High-scoring test in front of big crowd.

Besides his teammates Marco Richter, Timo Baumgartl (1. FC Union Berlin) and Sebastien Haller (Borussia Dortmund), Boëtius is the fourth Bundesliga professional to have been diagnosed with a tumor in the last few months.
