Sevilla players knew Berizzo’s illness

Sevilla players were reportedly informed of Coach Eduardo Berizzo’s prostate cancer earlier this week and not during the match against Liverpool.

Sevillainfo.es – the outlet who originally reported the news of the Argentine’s condition – reported Los Rojiblancos players were told of the news during half-time of the Champions League clash.

At that point, their side were trailing 3-0 before a rousing second half comeback saw them earn a dramatic 3-3 draw in the third minute of injury time.

CNN have since reported that those claims were untrue with the Andalucian club reportedly informing them that their squad were aware of the news earlier this week.
