Miki Roque died due to pelvic cancer after a struggle of one year

Barcelona can find solace by winning La Liga today if they can beat Real Betis today in their home ground after being hammered by Bayern for 7-0 aggregate in UEFA champions league. There were rumors last week before Barca‘s match against Bilbao that they would try to avoid a win(and league) against Bilbao to celebrate with their home fans in Nou camp if Real Madrid fails to win in Madrid against Aletico Madrid.

Today Betis is visiting Barcelona for the 34th round league match. Let’s point to an example of generosity andsuport football players shows these days for those who are needed support. Puyol is not anonymous in football world after leading Barcelona for a decade. But Miki Roque probably would be anonymous outside Spain. He was a defender playing for Betis when diagnosed of Pelvic cancer. Roque lost his fight against cancer in 24 june 2012 after he initially diagnosed of disease.

Spanish football world was unaware of the expenses of expensive treatment Roque received till his club revealed that it was financed by Puyol. His big heart also found space to write his name in his newly designed boot. He was a frequent visitor to the Dexeus Clinic in Barcelona where Roque was treated. Hope cule’s will pay tribute to Roque at time of their league celebration (if they win today).
