“Leo Messi made a donation to the clinic to fight the coronavirus,” Hospital Clinic wrote on Twitter. “Thank you very much, Leo, for your commitment and your support.”
The Manchester City Manager, Guardiola, who was a former Barcelona player and Manager, made his donation to a campaign launched by the Angel Soler Daniel Foundation and Medical College of Barcelona.
