In Spain, the corona virus is raging like no other country in Europe, nowhere are there more infected people. One of them was Pep Guardiola’s mother. She now succumbed to the consequences of the insidious disease.
“Everyone in the club sends his warmest sympathy to Pep and his family during this difficult time,” wrote the English first division club Manchester City.
It was a message to his trainer. Pep Guardiola mourns the loss of his mother Dolors Sala Carrió. The 82-year-old was infected with the corona virus and died as a result of the disease in Manresa near Barcelona.
Guardiola donated a million euros in the fight against the Corona crisis a few days ago. He used the money to support a hospital in his native Barcelona and a Spanish foundation for the purchase of medical equipment.
