Video of minute silence for Tito Vilanova before Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich took on Werder Bremen

A mourning Pep Guardiola observed a minute silence for his friend Tito Vilanova, who passed away on Friday, ahead of the game between his Bayern Munich side and Werder Bremen.

Unfortunately, a long arduous battle with cancer cut short Vilanova’s time in charge of Barcelona short, a recurrence of the throat cancer he had initially overcame was found in late 2012.

Guardiola and Vilanova had a close relationship both on and off the pitch. They both attended Barcelona’s La Masia academy together before reuniting to coach the Barcelona first team.

Vilanova played a huge part in the success during Guardiola’s tenure as Barcelona manager and was backed by Guardiola himself to take over the managerial reigns when the current Bayern Munich coached stepped down from his position.
