Mourinho has wished Vilanova a speedy recovery as the 44-year-old began a second battle with cancer.

Vilanova had operation on his parotid gland yesterday, which the club confirmed went "as expected" and will now start six weeks of chemotherapy.

"With things like this we are on the same side," Mourinho said. "For Tito, for his family and for everyone with health problems we are all hoping together that they all recover."
