Sevilla Confirm Manager Eduardo Berizzo Has Cancer

Berizzo took over the Andalusian outfit in the summer after guiding Celta Vigo to the Europa League semi-finals.

Diario de Sevilla broke the news last night and reported that the 48-year old told his players the devastating news at half-time. However, as per CNN Sport, Sevilla told them that players were informed a few of days prior to the game.

The hosts were 3-0 down and struggling by the half hour mark, with Liverpool running riot and goals coming from Roberto Firmino (2) and Sadio Mane.

Jurgen Klopp's troops looked to be on their way to becoming the first side to beat Sevilla on their own path since 2016, but as overused as the cliche is, it really was a game of two halves.

However, a quite remarkable comeback took place. Star striker Wissam Ben Yedder bagged two in nine minutes, including a 60th minute penalty, to become Sevilla's top scorer in the Champions League and set up a grandstand finish.

Then the comeback was complete, Guido Pizarro popping up in the 93rd minute and sparking incredible scenes in Sevilla. The goalscorer and his teammates were straight over to their coach to celebrate the crucial goal.

We wish Toto a speedy recovery in his battle against this awful illness.
