Last April 25, 2014 Barça's coach died due to a cancer
This Saturday one year ago Tito Vilanova died. Last April 25, 2014, cancer won the battle to Barça's coach, who didn't surrendered in the fight until the last moment.
He left, but he is here more than ever. His name is on Barça's training every day since last February 20. Field numer 1 of Sports City Joan Gamper was given the name of Tito Vilanova, who was coach of the best Barça in histroy, first by Pep Guardiola's side and after, as first coach of the historical 100 points Liga.
But beyond titles and football success Tito was modest, kindness and dedication. He sat on the bench of a team full of stars that achieved everything, but far from grandiloquences he always kept his feet on the floor, and in silence he was on the move of winning on the field and in life. And what's most important, and not usual, he broke the wall of the relationship coach-player, by treating them as people, specially Messi, who he met while he was playing at Barça's youth teams and that he took care as nobody else did.
Barça payed tribute to Tito Vilanova with a video in the first anniversary of his death.
