Manchester City has confirmed the death of club head coach Pep Guardiola’s mother Dolors Sala Carrio due to complications from COVID-19. She was 82 years old and died in Barcelona.

“The Manchester City family are devastated to report the death today of Pep’s mother Dolors Sala Carrio in Manresa, Barcelona after contracting coronavirus,” a statement on the team’s website said. Everyone associated with the club sends their most heartfelt sympathy at this most distressing time to Pep, his family and all their friends.”

Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak also offered his condolences to Guardiola in a statement. “Our prayers and heartfelt sympathies are with Pep and his family at this overwhelmingly sad time,” Mubaraka said. “He and they have the love and support of the entire City family.”

Cross-town rivals Manchester United also released a statement showing their support for Guardiola. “Everyone at Manchester United is saddened to hear this terrible news. We send our heartfelt condolences to Pep and his family,” the club tweeted.

Two weeks ago the Spanish-born coach donated €1 million to aid coronavirus relief in Spain, Europe’s second most-infected country with more than 135,000 reported cases and over 13,000 deaths. The money was given to the Barcelona Medical College and the Angel Soler Daniel foundation with a statement that said it would be allocated for “the acquisition of sanitary material during the COVID-19 emergency.”
