Sevilla head coach Joaquin Caparros has revealed shocking announcement on his health. Following the 2-0 win at Real Valladolid, the 63-year-old has revealed he has chronic leukaemia but will continue working at the club.
“It doesn’t impede my work. I am going about my daily life. I am not receiving any treatment. I want to enjoy my work,” he said.
Capparos, who previously managed the team from 2000 to 2005, only took over in March. His deal expires at the end of the season.
Chronic leukaemia is a type of cancer which progresses slowly and does not always need to be treated immediately.
The most shocking fact is that this is the second season in a row that Sevilla manager has been diagnosed with cancer. Eduardo Berizzo was diagnosed with prostate cancer in November 2017 and sacked a month after returning from surgery.
Berizzo now managing Paraguay national team.
