Iniesta and Messi rally to support Vilanova

Andres Iniesta and Leo Messi both sent public messages of support to Tito Vilanova after he was forced to step down as Barcelona coach.

Vilanova had to leave the post after suffering a relapse in his battle against throat cancer.

Iniesta told AS: “Tito will once again win this terrible battle facing him. On behalf of the players and everyone, I send him all my love and support. At the end of the day, this is about a person, not a coach.”

Meanwhile Messi took to Facebook to issue a simple statement, saying: “Strength Tito! We are all with you in this fight!”
