Sevilla coach to undergo surgery to treat prostate cancer
MADRID (AP) — Sevilla coach Eduardo “Toto” Berizzo will undergo surgery to treat prostate cancer on Tuesday, the club said.
Berizzo’s return will depend on “the success of the surgery” and his “post-operative development.”
Assistant manager Ernesto Marcucci will coach the first team until Berizzo is back.
Sevilla announced last week that the 48-year-old Argentine was diagnosed with a malignant prostate tumor.
Sevilla lies fifth in the Spanish league.
