    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    Tito honored with training ground

    In an act attended by Tito's family, president Bartomeu and the players, training pitch one is renamed after the former Barça player and coach Tito Vilanova.



    On February 20th in a small ceremony at Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, training pitch number one, where the first team usually trains, was officially renamed after Tito Vilanova. The Club, in an event attended by Tito's family and the players, thus honoured the man who was both an Academy player and the first-team coach. Tito died on April 252014.


    In a single sentence Montse Chaure, Tito Vilanova's wife, who was accompanied by their children, Carlota and Adrià, summed up the persona of the ex-Barça coach.
    "Tito loved coming here,"
    she said, also explaining that
    "he said it was a privilege to train the best team in the world and he loved the players."
    Above all, she thanked the Club for puttinghis name on the first team's training pitch: "
    This is the best way to remember him — everyone together and with a smile."
    FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu talked about the significance of Tito Vilanova in the annals of Club history, and explained why the Club wanted to put Tito's name on the pitch: "From now on,all generations that come to train at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper will know who Tito Vilanova was."
