Former Barcelona’s coach Tito Vilanova passed away
Tito Vilanova, Martino’s predecessor in Barcelona, died today after suffering a relapse from cancer that affected him for two years.
The former coach had undergone emergency surgery on Thursday after suffering gastric complications and, according to the National Radio of Spain (RNE); his condition was “extremely serious”. He was admitted to the Chiron Clinic of Barcelona.
Vilanova fought cancer in the parotid gland, but last Friday suffered a third relapse of the disease detected in 2011 that forced him to leave the technical direction of Barcelona before starting the European season.
