Pep Guardiola has reportedly made a quick visit to Barcelona, where he met with Tito Vilanova.
The two former Barcelona managers are alleged to have had a falling out during Vilanova’s illness with cancer.
He spent time in New York receiving treatment while Guardiola- his old friend and predecessor in the Barca hot seat- was on sabbatical in the same city.
Vilanova was said to be hurt that Pep did not make time to see him while he was ill.
And the friction between the two friends was compounded by the political in-fighting at the Camp Nou, with Barca president Sandro Rosell accused of fuelling the row for personal gain.
Mundo Deportivohas now reported that Guardiola visited with Vilanova for three hours on Monday, after attending to other personal matters in Catalonia.
No details of their conversation have emerged, but the paper claims that the pair have set aside their differences.
This development will warm the hearts of Barca fans and neutrals alike.
It had been unsavoury to see Pep and Vilanova- so close during four seasons of unprecedented success working together at the Camp Nou- falling out, especially during such a traumatic time in Vilanova’s life.
Meanwhile, according to Soccernet, a mosaic in honour of Vilanova will be displayed at the Camp Nou when Barca host Real Madrid in the season’s first Clasico on Saturday.
90 000 fans in the stadium will hold up placards to form a sign that says 'Força Tito' in a message of support for his ongoing battle with cancer.
