Rafael Nadal has sent his condolences to former Barcelona and Spain manager Luis Enrique after he announced the tragic death of his daughter Xana.
He posted on Twitter:
I just heard the terrible news of Xana’s death.
I’m very sad and I can’t even imagine the pain of the family.
A huge hug to Luis Enrique and the whole family from a distance.
Lots of strength and encouragement in these tough times!
Enrique stepped down from his role as Spain manager earlier this year to focus on her illness. His 9-year-old daughter fought osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, for five months.
Rafa’s uncle Miguel Angel played with Enrique at Barcelona and the Spanish national team.
