Updated: Get Well Soon: Tito Vilanova

19 Dec

tito-vilanovaI was very sorry to hear today that Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova has suffered a recurrence of his cancer. He had a cancerous tumor removed about 13 months ago. Barca will make a statement later today about the 44 year old coach’s condition. Real Madrid made an official announcement wishing him well and extending support to his family and club. Several RM players have also offered support through social media. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tito and his family. Let’s hope he makes a speedy recovery. Animo Tito!

UPDATED: Tito will undergo surgery tomorrow with a hospital stay of 3-4 days followed by 6 weeks of chemo.

– Lozil

    Illnesses go beyond team allegiances, and cancer is always a frightening diagnosis. Animo Tito!

    I support Real but I’ve been incredibly impressed with how he’s coached Barca so far. He’s already lead the team on a historical strong start and I would love to see what he can do with this team over the next few years, provided his health allows him to continue working. Wishing him strength and hopefully a full recovery ❤

    That is such a shame. I wish him a quick and complete recovery.

    He has proven to be a worthy opponent, and so that makes him a fierce warrior who I know is up to this new battle. And like his team, I hope he gets a winning streak. Animo, Tito!
