Berizzo discharged from hospital after successful cancer surgery

Updated: 

Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo will continue his recovery at home after being discharged from hospital following successful prostate cancer surgery.

Berizzo's illness was revealed following Sevilla's stunning comeback in a 3-3 Champions League draw against Liverpool last month.

Ernesto Marcucci was placed in charge of first-team affairs in Berizzo's absence, with Sevilla offering no timescale for the coach's return to the dugout.

A Sevilla statement released on Saturday read: "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 beat Deportivo La Coruna 2-0 in LaLiga on Saturday to make it three wins out of three in all competitions since Berizzo's illness came to light.
