Baumgartl underwent a successful operation

Timo Baumgartl will miss the remainder of the season. During a routine examination, the 26-yard-old defender discovered a tumour. He underwent a successful operation to remove the tumour a few days later. Further preventative treatments will follow in the coming weeks.

Baumgartl, on loan with FC Union Berlin, is doing well. “Fortunately, I have been going for preventive care for several years. I’m grateful for the quick, clear diagnosis and for the surgery that has gone well. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the incredible support. I will never forget that. My focus now is on recovering as quickly as possible.”
