Manchester City tweeted Monday: “The Manchester City family are devastated to report today the death of Pep’s mother, Dolors Sala Carrió, in Manresa, Barcelona, after contracting the Corona virus. She was 82 years old. Everyone associated with the club sends its most sincere sympathy at this most painful moment to Pep, to his family and to all their friends. “
Last month, the city’s director donated € 1 million to the Angel Soler Daniel Foundation and the Barcelona Medical College to purchase equipment to fight the disease in Spain. He killed over 13,000 people there, making Guardiola the homeland of one of the hardest hit nations.
Manchester United tweeted, “Everyone at Manchester United is saddened to hear this terrible news. We send our sincere condolences to Pep and his family. “
Arsenal tweeted, “We are deeply saddened by this heartbreaking news. Send our love and strength to Pep and his family in these difficult times. “
