Lionel Messi is the center of the news in the previous match of the Spain Supercup between Barcelona and Real Sociedad. And it is that the Argentine crack has been seen very moved in the advancement of a report in memory of Tito vilanova, the former Barça coach who lost his life in 2014 due to cancer.
The Argentine genius was on the verge of tears when he remembered the last conversation he had with whoever was one of the coaches who marked his career and who achieved important things for the Barcelona club. For example, LaLiga de los 100 points.
“We had a lot of conversations, but we always talked about football and what happened in the matches or what could happen,” Lionel Messi told the Barcelona channel. “The most special was the last one because as a farewell too,” said the ’10’, who tried to hold back the tears when remembering Vilanova.
It should be remembered that after a months-long struggle and treatments against parotid cancer, Tito Vilanova died on April 25, 2014 at 45 years of age. Pep Guardiola’s assistant was diagnosed with the disease in 2011.
