On Saturday, as his side were in action against Deportivo, the club released a brief communiqué: “Eduardo Berizzo has been discharged from hospital this Saturday after four days of recuperation after undergoing surgery on Tuesday on the prostate adenocarcinoma he was diagnosed with a few weeks ago. Berizzo will continue his post-operation recovery at home.”

Sevilla’s players paid Berizzo a visit in hospital last Thursday and a day later Ernesto Marcucci, Berizzo’s assistant coach who is in temporary charge of the team, said that the prognosis is extremely positive and that the Sevilla boss could return to first-team duties before Christmas.
