Manchester City manager Guardiola donates €1m to help fight coronavirus in Barcelona

Manchester City manager Guardiola donates €1m to help fight coronavirus in Barcelona”

Cristiano Ronaldo's consistency puts him ahead of Lionel Messi as the world's best player, according to Pele, but he doesn't believe that either man is as good as he was in his prime.

"Leo Messi made a donation to the clinic to fight the coronavirus", it wrote.

"Thank you very much Leo, for your commitment and your support", the hospital said.

The Manchester City manager made the sizeable contribution to the Angel Soler Daniel Foundation, which will invest it in medical equipment.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported that half of the €1 million will go to Clinic Barcelona and the other half to a medical center in Messi's native Argentina.

"The fundraising campaign led by the Official College of Doctors of Barcelona and managed through the Foundation, is aimed at obtaining cash donations from doctors who are members of the college and the general population to buy health equipment which is now lacking in hospitals in Catalonia", the Foundation concluded their statement, as reported by Sky Sports.

Before Guardiola and Messi made their donations, the campaign had raised €33,000 in three days.

Spain is the country worst affected by the disease in Europe outside of Italy, with 2,696 deaths and nearly 40,000 positive cases.

The money will be used to help purchase medical equipment and protective material for the hospital staff involved in treating those admitted to hospital.

Last week Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski donated 1m euros to fight the coronavirus pandemic in Germany.
