The Reds went into the break 3-0 up against Sevilla on Tuesday night, courtesy of a brace from Roberto Firmino and a header from Sadio Mane.

The Spanish side, however, came out flying in the second half of the clash, scoring three goals to dramatically draw the match.

Guido Pizarro's late equaliser saw all of the players celebrate wildly with their manager Eduardo Berizzo, who reportedly gave his players sad news at half-time.

According to Sevillainfo, the coach has reportedly been diagnosed with prostate cancer and is said to have let his players know of his diagnosis when his team were in the changing room at the break.

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague seemingly confirmed the report in a tweet.

Midfielder Ever Banega also spoke about how the players rallied around their manager after the match.

"He is the most important of all of us, he has (got us) on the right path and we are with him to the hilt," he said, according to the Daily Express.

The club have since confirmed that boss Berizzo has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
