Chelsea FC Player Out Due To Battle With Cancer | SEE DETAILS
A Chelsea FC star player is set to miss out on a new football season due to health-related issues.
In an official statement shared today, Tuesday, August 23, 2022, star player for the Chelsea women’s team Ann-Katrin Berger took to her social media to confirm that her battle with cancer is not yet over as her cancer has returned.
A statement shared by the legendary Chelsea goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger revealed:
‘I wanted to update fans directly that unfortunately, after four years of living cancer-free, there has been a recurrence detected in my thyroid.
I’ve said before that as a sportsperson you have to fight every day to be the best you can be and that’s something I will continue to do and I hope by sharing my journey, I can help others that find themselves in a similar situation.
I am working closely with my club doctor and specialist in London and my treatment will start this week. I remain positive that my treatment will be as effective as last time and I’m looking forward to returning to the pitch and seeing you all at Kingsmeadow and Stamford Bridge.’
The club has pledged its support to the women’s goalkeeper as they are hopeful she would return stronger as she had previously done.
