Barcelona marked the one-year anniversary of the death of former boss Tito Vilanova with an emotional video on Saturday.

Vilanova sadly lost his long battle with cancer on April 25, 2014, aged just 45, after he suffered a relapse of the disease that had forced him to step down as coach of the Catalan giants a year earlier.

With Saturday marking one year since his death, Barcelona decided to pay tribute to their former manager by publishing a video called ‘A year without Tito Vilanova’ on their YouTube channel.

Vilanova spent five years at the Catalan club before taking over as head coach.

After being assistant of the B side along with Pep Guardiola, both coaches were assigned to the first team and after four of the most successful years in the club’s history, Vilanova took over as first team manager when Guardiola announced his resignation in 2012.

However, after only one season in charge where he won the La Liga title, he resigned due to a relapse from the condition.

He then passed away at the age of 45 on April 25, 2014 and the club remembered him by naming their training pitch Camp Tito Vilanova.
