The 82-year-old mother of Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has died of COVID-19, the English Premier League club reported.

Guardiola’s club published a statement which explained, “The Manchester City family are devastated to report the death today of Pep’s mother Dolors Sala Carrio in Manresa, Barcelona after contracting coronavirus. She was 82-years-old. Everyone associated with the club sends their most heartfelt sympathy at this most distressing time to Pep, his family and all their friends.”
Guardiola made his name first as a player and then as coach with FC Barcelona before moving on to enjoy successful coaching spells with Bayern Munich and Manchester City.
Last week saw City’s defender Kyle Walker in the headlines after he had broken lockdown regulations imposed to halt spread the coronavirus. 
“Footballers are global role models, and our staff and players have been working to support the incredible efforts of the NHS and other key workers in fighting the effects of the coronavirus in any way we can. Kyle’s actions in this matter have directly contravened these efforts,” explained his club adding it would be holding an investigation into the defender’s behavior.
