Vilanova steps down as Barcelona manager

Recommended Posts

Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova is set to step down from his post after suffering a relapse of a tumor he had removed last year.

The 44-year-old had a tumor on his parotid gland removed in emergency surgery last November when he was the club's assistant manager.

The parotid gland is the largest of the human salivary glands.

He took over the top job after Pep Guardiola stepped down in April this year, signing a two-year contract.

Barcelona are currently nine points clear at the top of La Liga and are reportedly in talks with a replacement for the rest of the season.

They cancelled a scheduled press conference on Wednesday as the news broke, as well as the staff Christmas party.

Stepped down.



Mad times at Barcelona.


Madrid drop points at home over the weekend, Barc beat Falcao and go more points clear.


New deals announced for effectively the spine on the club.


Abidal looking like he recovering well, gets announced.


Then this...


Champions League draw tomorrow as well.

Malignant tumors are no joke mate.


Benign tumors work within the tissue but Malignant tumors work outside the damaged tissue allowing it to spread across the body mutating cells causing great risk of potential seizures which in turn suppress the flight or fight response under stressful conditions releasing the hormone cortisol.


I wouldn't expect him to be back in management soon
