Dutch footballer Jean-Paul Boethius has had a successful operation. Recently, a testicular tumor was discovered in his Rotterdammer, 28. “The surgery went well,” the Hertha Berlin player said on Instagram, posting a photo of him in a hospital bed.
The former Racing Genk player moved from FSV Mainz to Hertha BSC last summer. Boethius has made six appearances for Hertha in the Bundesliga this season, two of which he has played as a base. However, his 1st degree international for the Dutch national team is currently on the sidelines.
“Thank you for your heartwarming and uplifting words,” said Boethius, who has received statements of support from many famous footballers and clubs. Special thanks to Hertha BSC and the medical staff.”
Not only did he post a photo of himself in his hospital bed on Instagram, but he also enlarged the smiley, which is an earring. So the Dutch seem to be keeping a positive attitude.
Boethius is the second player to be diagnosed with testicular cancer a few months later at Red Devil Dodi Luquebakio’s club, Hertha Berlin. Right winger Marco Richter also received a harsh verdict this summer. He was able to celebrate his return home at the end of August.
