Sevilla says Argentine coach Berizzo has a malignant tumor

MADRID (AP) A day after Sevilla rallied to hold Liverpool to a remarkable 3-3 draw in the Champions League, the Spanish club said coach Eduardo "Toto" Berizzo has a malignant tumor.

Rumors about the coach's condition began spreading not long after Tuesday's match in Seville. On Wednesday, the club confirmed that the 48-year-old Argentine has been diagnosed with a prostate tumor.

Sevilla's mantra of "Never Give Up" was extensively brought up by fans and players after the club pulled off its comeback against Liverpool with an injury-time goal by Guido Pizarro. It was brought up again on Wednesday.
