Guardiola: “The profound sorrow I have will accompany me for the rest of my life” FC Barcelona's former manager and current coach of Bayern Munich expresses his deep sorrow for the loss of his friend, Tito Vilanova After Bayern Munich’s victory over Weder Bremen (5-2), Pep Guardiola held a press conference in which he remembered his friend Tito Vilanova: “I want to express my condolences on behalf of my family to his father, Joaquín, his mother, María Rosa, to Montse, his wife, and to his children, Carlota and Adrià.” Guardiola, who had Vilanova as his assistant for five years at FC Barcelona (one year with the reserve team and four with the first team), talked about his long relationship with the late manager that started when they were both children at La Masia: “We were very young, we wanted to conquer the world and that’s what we did.

One of his greatest achievements is stepping up to be Barcelona manager after Pep Guardiola earning 100 points for the club - the highest total ever for Barca. He began as a youth player at La Masia and ended his football life coaching the club he loves. May he rest in peace.
He was the manager in the season of 100 points, the highest total ever for FC Barcelona A product of La Masia, Vilanova was part of the greatest Barça team of all time On April 25 2014, at the age of 45, Tito passed away after a long struggle against the illness which was first diagnosed two and a half years earlier. Vilanova was brave, honest, hard- working, perfectionist, methodical, pragmatic and intuitive on both a personal and a professional level, and always remained loyal to the club and to himself, as defined by two of his companions from his youth right through to his managerial days, Jordi Roura and Aureli Altimira. As a coach, Vilanova was analytical, cerebral and observant and was famed for the amount of gestures he used make as he directed his teams. Those that worked alongside him considered him a tactical genius in a job for which his nature could not have been better suited. On April 27, 2012 Tito Vilanova was the natural choice to take over from the departing Pep Guardiola as FC Barcelon ...

Cesc Fabregas to seek guidance from Tito Vilanova Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas will reportedly speak to manager Tito Vilanova regarding his future at the club in a bid to seek assurances about his position at the Camp Nou. The former Arsenal man has endured a mixed season, with a position in the first team not yet cemented due to the high number of midfielders the club have. The 26-year-old was thought to be the long term successor to midfield maestro Xavi Hernandez, but the former has not convinced his coach that he deserves to start in place of Xavi. This has led to the Spain international in a desperate situation, having to play in various positions along the midfield and attacking roles, even playing as a false n0.9 on some occasions. Uncertainty has now crept into his mind, and he is looking to talk to Vilanova before making a final decision on his future. The La Masia graduate has been linked with a move back to the Premier League in recent weeks, with Manchester United heavily rumoured to be ...
Rosell: Picking Vilanova as coach was the best decision Barcelona President Sandro Rosell has praised the decision to replace Pep Guardiola with Tito Vilanova. Vilanova replaced Pep Guardiola at the end of the 2011-12 campaign following the latter’s decision to end his four-year spell at Camp Nou and Vilanova has since guided the Catalans to their best ever La Liga season. “Tito has talent, he understands what Barcelona mean, what La Masia is and what being Catalan means,” Rosell told reporters. “It was a brilliant decision by Zubizarreta to give him the job.” Rosell then discussed Xavi Hernandez, who signed a new contract on Monday. “He has just renewed his contract until 2016. He’ll be 36-years-old by then, but we believe this deal won’t be the last he signs with us.” inside spanish football, admin andrew
Here is what the best coaches has to say about our one and only busquet Pep Guardiola: ''I wouldn't have won any trophies without Busquets''. Vicente del Bosque: ''I don't care about who ever is missing in the National Team as long as Sergio Busquets is in the squad''. Sir Alex Ferguson: ''Paul Scholes and Sergio Busquets are the most important players in their teams''. Tito Vilanova: ''I have never seen any player with that much confident''. Gerd Muller: ''For me Busquets is the best DMF in the world for the last couple of years''. Johan Cruyff: ''A player with a successful passing rate above 95% is indescribable. The least I could say about him is that he is one of the most Technical players from La Masia''. for Busquets

Tito Vilanova, 8 -- With 37 out of a possible 39 points won so far, Pep Guardiola's successor has officially equalled La Liga's best-ever start. Credit must be given to a confident newcomer who has managed to keep this group of players hungry for victory, eager to improve and ready to compete for reaching even higher heights. Fielding the first ever La Masia eleven will also go down as one of the proudest moments in over 100 years of Blaugrana history.
A History was made in the 14th minute when coach Tito Vilanova sent on Martin Montoya to replace the injured Dani Alves - completing a team full of La Masia products for the first time in the modern era. Not even Vilanova's predecessor Pep Guardiola managed the feat, fielding a maximum of nine homegrown players at any time. Brazilian substitute Adriano Correia broke the monopoly in the 75th minute, by which time Barca were four goals to the good. In the era of cosmopolitan swings, Barca provides an answer.
