He may not be with us in body, but in spirit Tito Vilanova, a true culé will always be remembered. Today September 17th, 46 years ago, Tito was born in the small municipality of Bellcaire d’Empordà. The man who was beaten by cancer aged just 45 last April led a remarkable blaugrana life, serving the true club of his heart first as a player and then returning with his best friend as a coach before becoming first team manager.
His daughter Carlota posted the above photo on her Instagram account, along with the caption ‘46’, as a reference to her father’s birthday.
Tito, por sempre etern.
