Vilanova ‘rushed to hospital’

Reports in Spain are that former Barcelona Coach Tito Vilanova has been rushed to hospital after his health today dramatically worsened.

While this is still yet to be officially confirmed, Radio Nacional say that the 45-year-old has undergone emergency surgery to deal with a gastric problem and that his condition remains very serious.

The tactician’s ongoing battle with parotid gland cancer meant that he was forced to stand down from his post at Camp Nou last summer.
