A former Barcelona coach, Tito Vilanova, has died at the age of 45 after a long battle with cancer, the club has announced.
The La Liga giants, through their official twitter handle @FCBarcelona, Friday evening broke the sad news to their fans across the world.
“The FC Barcelona is in immense mourning. Tito Vilanova has died at the age of 45. May he rest in peace,” the club wrote.
Barcelona had announced that Vilanova was suffering from parotid gland cancer for the second time in December 2012. The Spaniard was, however, first diagnosed a year earlier on November 22.
The degenerating health issues forced Vilanova to resign as Barcelona manager as he relapsed from his condition and could no longer cope with the demands of the job.
