“Everyone associated with the club sends their most heartfelt sympathy at this most distressing time to Pep, his family and all their friends,” said Manchester City on social media.

 

Monday’s increase of 637 coronavirus deaths means 13,055 have died in Spain.

Last month the City manager donated €1m to Barcelona’s Angel Soler Daniel Foundation and Medical College towards the purchase of equipment to fight the disease in Spain. It has killed more than 13,000 people there, making Guardiola’s homeland one of the hardest-hit nations.

Manchester United tweeted:

“Everyone at Manchester United is saddened to hear this terrible news. We send our heartfelt condolences to Pep and his family.”

Arsenal tweeted:

“We’re deeply saddened by this heartbreaking news. Sending our love and strength to Pep and his family at this difficult time.”
