Sevilla Fires Manager Eduardo Berizzo One Month After He Revealed Cancer Diagnosis

Eduardo Berizzo, who was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, has been fired as manager of Sevilla, the club announced Friday.

Sevilla said the dismissal was “due to the team's poor run.” The team has won three of its last 10 La Liga matches and currently sits fifth in the league table. It was beaten 3–1 by Real Sociedad on Wednesday and 5–0 by Real Madrid on Dec. 9. The club says it is already close to hiring another coach.

Berizzo, 48, was hired in May after a successful run at Celta Vigo. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in November and his players used the news as motivation to complete a comeback from down 3–0 against Liverpool in the Champions League. The club wound up advancing to the knockout stage, where it will face Manchester United.

“Sevilla FC wants to show their full support to the coach right now and wishes him a speedy recovery,” the club said in a statement announcing the diagnosis. Exactly a month later, he was let go.

Sevilla have sacked manager Eduardo Berizzo just a week after he returned to the club after recovering from prostate cancer surgery. A club statement read: &quot;The Board of Directors has taken the decision to dismiss the coach of the first team, Eduardo Berizzo , due to the team&#39;s bad run. &quot;Sevilla FC would like to express their gratitude to Eduardo Berizzo for his professionalism and dedication shown in the performance of his work, as well as for the good treatment given to all members of the club since his arrival.&quot; Wednesday&#39;s 3-1 defeat at Real Sociedad was their fourth successive match without a win across all competitions leaving them fifth in the table. Former Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique has been linked with the manager&#39;s job in recent days. Sevilla players flock to celebrate with Eduardo Berizzo during their 3-3 draw with Liverpool Credit: AFP Sevilla meet Jose Mourinho&#39;s Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League in February. The former River Plate defender underwent successful surgery at the start of December and returned to the dugout for the club&#39;s La Liga match against Levante&#39;s last Friday, but Sevilla were held to an underwhelming 0-0 draw. Berizzo told his Sevilla players of his diagnosis in late November, days before the Andalusian club took Liverpool in the group stages of the Champions League. &quot;I don&#39;t like being the focus of attention,&quot; he said after his players had rushed to celebrate a goal with him as a show of support. &quot;In my job, the players are the most important ones but I thank them for that gesture of support and for showing faith in their coach.

Sevilla have confirmed manager Eduardo Berizzo has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Spanish media reported on Wednesday the coach had informed his players of the condition at half-time during the 3-3 Champions League draw with Liverpool. At the time, Sevilla were trailing 3-0. However, Sevilla have since confirmed that Berizzo&#39;s players were told the news a few days ago. Nevertheless, Berizzo’s half-time address to his side must have been one of the most emotional of any coach, and will go some way to explaining the vast difference in application from the side in both halves of an extraordinary game. A club statement confirmed reports of Berizzo’s illness. “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,” read a Sevilla statement. Eduardo Berizzo told players at half-time of his cancer diagnosis Credit: AFP “The future examinations will allow to decide which are the steps to follow regarding their treatment. “Sevilla FC wants to show their maximum support to their coach at this time and wishes him a speedy recovery.” Argentine Berizzo is one of the Europe’s most respected coaches having previously managed Celta Vigo, where he was also a player. He led Celta to the Europa League semi-final prior to moving to Sevilla. Berizzo’s revelation adds a solemn perspective to the second half in Spain on Tuesday night, after which Liverpool have been roundly criticised for failing to prevent the stirring comeback. Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega said the players were determined to react to the half-time deficit for their coach, as well as their boisterous support who created a cauldron as their side fought back. Liverpool were pegged back from 3-0 down “It was a crazy game. We went into the changing rooms knowing that if we tried then we could pull it off. That’s how we have to play every game,” said Banega. “We have to go out there with that attitude, for the fans that always back us and for the coach who has turned this around. He is the most important of all of us, he has us on the right path and we are with him to the hilt.” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, said his players do not have a mentality problem despite their capitulation. &quot;Yes it was not perfect but it&#39;s not a general problem. It just happened,&quot; said Klopp. &quot;Could we have done better? One hundred per cent. Do I think it&#39;s a mentality problem? One hundred per cent not. &quot;We opened the door for them, didn&#39;t close it, so they could score in the last minute. That&#39;s the story of the game.&quot;

He led Celta to the Europa League semi-final prior to moving to Sevilla. Berizzo’s revelation adds a solemn perspective to the second half in Spain on Tuesday night, after which Liverpool have been roundly criticised for failing to prevent the stirring comeback. Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega said the players were determined to react to the half-time deficit for their coach, as well as their boisterous support who created a cauldron as their side fought back. Liverpool were pegged back from 3-0 down “It was a crazy game. We went into the changing rooms knowing that if we tried then we could pull it off. That’s how we have to play every game,” said Banega. “We have to go out there with that attitude, for the fans that always back us and for the coach who has turned this around. He is the most important of all of us, he has us on the right path and we are with him to the hilt.” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, said his players do not have a mentality problem despite their capitulation. &quot;Yes it was not perfect but it&#39;s not a general problem. It just happened,&quot; said Klopp. &quot;Could we have done better? One hundred per cent. Do I think it&#39;s a mentality problem? One hundred per cent not. &quot;We opened the door for them, didn&#39;t close it, so they could score in the last minute. That&#39;s the story of the game.&quot;
Sevilla players use coach Eduardo Berizzo's cancer diagnosis as inspiration for fightback against Liverpool
Sevilla have confirmed manager Eduardo Berizzo has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Spanish media reported on Wednesday the coach had informed his players of the condition at half-time during the 3-3 Champions League draw with Liverpool. At the time, Sevilla were trailing 3-0. However, Sevilla have since confirmed that Berizzo's players were told the news a few days ago. Nevertheless, Berizzo’s half-time address to his side must have been one of the most emotional of any coach, and will go some way to explaining the vast difference in application from the side in both halves of an extraordinary game. A club statement confirmed reports of Berizzo’s illness. “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,” read a Sevilla statement. Eduardo Berizzo told players at half-time of his cancer diagnosis Credit: AFP “The future examinations will allow to decide which are the steps to follow regarding their treatment. “Sevilla FC wants to show their maximum support to their coach at this time and wishes him a speedy recovery.” Argentine Berizzo is one of the Europe’s most respected coaches having previously managed Celta Vigo, where he was also a player. He led Celta to the Europa League semi-final prior to moving to Sevilla.
