Borussia Dortmund drama, Herrlich has brain tumour



Borussia Dortmund striker Heiko Herrlich has been diagnosed as having a brain tumour, the German soccer club said on Tuesday. Borussia said Herrlich, 28, had impaired vision which turned out to be caused by the tumour. They said the striker was undergoing further tests and added 'a full recovery appears possible'.


This is from Calciomercato. I'll keep looking for more news as it breaks.


Rui Costa, YES!!

I┤ve seen it today on DSF.
And it was a big shock!

If I got that right, they┤re not sure if the tumour is malignant.
Let┤s all hope the best for Heiko Herrlich.

I'm not normally a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me, Superman.

You got that right MxPx. He will have further tests and then he will have an operation in a couple of days.

Let's hope and pray for the best for him

Well, the thing here is that they recognized it early enough to even avoid operation perhaps. That┤s good news inside this bad news. For me it is more important that this very nice player will get healthy again than that we as Dortmund fans miss his goals. His teammates will play for him and we all wish him good luck and the best to his family!!!

Yeah it's really a shock

But true, at least they recognize it early so hopefully it's still possible for him to recover completely - it would be tragic otherwise

Yup, pls keep us updated abt this

Is there any update on this? I haven't seen anything and my UK friend who is Bundesliga crazy hasn't seen anything either.

Rui Costa, YES!!

I dunno whether this can be considered an update, but the latest I heard from this is that at the moment is that he's getting lots of supports from all over the world - been receiving more than 10000 letters, e-mails and faxes that express support for him.
From what I read, at the moment he can no longer see clearly but is already able to walk around the house...

And for those who want to express their support / sympathy, you can go to
