Barca will pay tribute to former coach with special message on shirt.
Spanish giants Barcelona will go into Saturday’s game against Getafe by wearing a special shirt in tribute to their former coach Tito Vilanova after he tragically lost his battle to cancer last week.
The shirts, which will look no different to how they do now, will have a special message stitched on to the front reading; ”Tito, per sempre extern”, which means Tito, forever eternal.
The club has also said on their website:
A video showing highlights of Tito’s life will be shown on the video scoreboards, a huge banner will be unfurled on one side of the stadium and announcer Manel Vich will then introduce a minute’s silence.
The club is calling on supporters to make sure they get to the stadium about ten minutes earlier than usual in order to join in with this emotional farewell to Tito Vilanova.
