Football players of Barcelona wanted before the game in fifth round Group H Champions League with AC Milan to come out with a t-shirt support to their assistant coach Tito Vilanova, which was successfully operated on a tumor, but Uefa said “no.”
Assistant coach of Josep Guardiola, Tito Vilanova, operated on a tumor on the parotid gland, and his players wanted to send a message of support wearing a shirt with his name, but the European football organization has stopped that idea.
Catalans will so wear t-shirts with the name of their assistant coache before the game in 15th round of Spanish football league, 29 November, in which they welcome Levante. A similar case we had last season when the players of Real Madrid in the Champions League game against Lyon, wanted to express support for Eric Abidal, who fought with liver tumors, but Uefa has banned the attempt.
Xavi’s victory over Milan devoted to the assistant coach Tito Vilanova, which was successfully operated on a tumor in theparotid gland.
“This victory I dedicate to Tito and his family. We were missing him,” said Xavi after the match.
