The second-tier Championship club announced on Monday that Cardiff City defender Sol Bamba was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a form of cancer in the lymphatic system, and began a course of chemotherapy treatment.

Bamba, 35, has been used sparingly this season as a backup in the league and made his last appearance in a 3-2 victory over Birmingham City in December when he came on in stoppage time.

“Universally admired by teammates, staff, and supporters in the Welsh capital, Sol has begun his battle is typically positive spirits and will continue to be an integral part of the Bluebirds family,” the club said in a statement.

Sol will assist his teammates in matches and our younger players inside the academy during recovery, with whom he will continue his coaching development.

During Cardiff’s Premier League promotion bid in 2017-18, Bamba was a key player, featuring in all 46 league games as they finished second and secured an automatic entry into the top flight.
