Eduardo Berizzo had told the chairman of Sevilla and some other top officials of the club three weeks ago that he was diagnosed with cancer, but the news were not shared with the broader public until after the team’s 3-3 draw against Liverpool.
The medical services of Sevilla FC report that the coach of the first team, Eduardo Berizzo, has been diagnosed with an adenocarcinoma of the prostate. Future examinations will allow us to decide what steps to follow regarding its treatment
the club announced through a written statement.
Sevilla FC wants to show its full support for the coach right now and wishes him a speedy recovery
the statement also read. As for Jose Castro, the club’s president, he too showed his full support to the Argentine coach.
We’ve explained the feelings of the club in the official statement but the important thing is that Berizzo feels strong and is awaiting the treatment he’s going to follow
the Sevilla chairman said, also making a very interesting revelation, regarding Barcelona.
Straight away I was there for him, and so was the club. I have to also give thanks for all the calls we’ve received, both from the sporting world and outside. The President of FC Barcelona has got in contact to offer the club’s full medical team. I think that says it all. Many institutions have contacted the club to wish Berizzo well and I want to thank everyone for this
Jose Castro said.
