MADRID, Spain (AP):

Sevilla coach Eduardo 'Toto' Berizzo will undergo surgery to treat prostate cancer today, the club said.

Berizzo's return will depend on "the success of the surgery" and his "post-operative development".

Assistant manager Ernesto Marcucci will coach the first team until Berizzo is back.

Sevilla announced last week that the 48-year-old Argentine was diagnosed with a malignant prostate tumour.

Sevilla are fifth in the Spanish league.
