Barcelona to honour Tito Vilanova on home shirt against Getafe

Barcelona reveal plans to add a tribute to their home shirts against Getafe on Saturday in honour of former manager Tito Vilanova.

Barcelona have revealed that they will pay tribute to former manager Tito Vilanova this weekend by adding a message to the team's home shirts.

The Catalan giants will take to the pitch at Camp Nou against Getafe on Saturday wearing shirts carrying the message "Tito, per sempre etern", which translates as "Tito, forever eternal".

The 45-year-old passed away last Friday after losing his battle with throat cancer, which he was diagnosed with back in November 2011.

The Spanish club are also planning a video tribute and minute's silence to honour the Spaniard before their La Liga clash.

Vilanova replaced Pep Guardiola as Barcelona manager in 2012, but was forced to step down from his role last summer due to his illness.
