      John Toshack seriously ill with Covid
      Feb 27, 2022 12:30:42 pm
      Liverpool legend and former Wales manager John Toshack is in intensive care after suffering complications in his battle against Covid.

      The 72-year-old’s condition has worsened in the last few hours after medics confirmed he was suffering “serious pneumonia”, according to Spanish newspaper El Diario Vasco.

      Toshack, who had a successful managerial career with the likes of Real Madrid and Real Sociedad, is said to be at a hospital in Barcelona where he lives with his wife Maite.

      There has not yet been any official comment from his family or the hospital.

      Local reports said the Welshman was admitted to hospital on Monday after falling ill at the weekend.

      Get well soon Tosh!

      I remember being on the Kop many years ago and the ground was shrouded with fog. We could just see the halfway line but the game continued. Liverpool were attacking the Anfield Road End, and we heard big roar when Liverpool scored. The Kop started the shout, "Who's cored the Goal?... who scored the goal?." To which came to reply from the Anfield Road end "Toshack."

      And who will forget Tosh wearing his Liverpool shirt after Hillsborough. What a man. Get well soon Tosh.

      John Toshack: Former Real Madrid, Swansea and Wales boss 'on the mend', says son Cameron


      Quote
      Former Wales manager John Toshack is "on the mend" after being seriously ill with Covid-19 and pneumonia earlier this year.

      The 73-year-old was hospitalised in Spain in February but came out of intensive care in March.

      Toshack's son Cameron, Leeds United's assistant head coach, says his father's health is improving.

      "He is on good form and he is making a recovery, which I am pleased to share with you," Cameron said.

      "I speak to him regularly now. The most pleasing thing is he is on the mend and his health is a lot better.

      "I am hoping to see him maybe not in the international break, but certainly when the World Cup comes around. I am hoping to either go out to Barcelona or have him back in Wales."

      Toshack senior, who managed the likes of Real Madrid, Real Sociedad and Swansea City, spent time on a ventilator, with his condition at the time described as being very serious.

      But Cameron Toshack says the former Liverpool striker has been well enough to give him tactical advice ahead of Leeds' Premier League game against Chelsea on Sunday.

      "I spoke to him yesterday and he gave me a tutorial about playing against a back three, particularly with the likes of [Thiago] Silva, [Kalidou] Koulibaly and [Cesar] Azpilicueta, which made me smile," he told BBC Radio Wales Sport.

      Cameron joined Leeds' staff in early March, shortly after Jesse Marsch was named head coach at Elland Road.

      It was at that time that his father was seriously ill.
      "The timing of everything wasn't ideal," Cameron added.

      "At that time, the first two weeks of coming into Leeds United, in what was a challenging situation - a new job in the most competitive and biggest league in the world - there were a few decisions I had to make.

      "I was going to go over and visit him at the time but I was assured he was in safe hands.

      "When he went onto the ventilator, clearly it wouldn't have made too much difference whether I was there or not.

      "I said to the people at the time, if I had gone and sat next to him in the bed and had the opportunity to be coaching in the Premier League, he wouldn't have been very pleased if I was sat next to him.

      "Even though it was difficult, I spoke to a number of people close to me and they said that's what he would have wanted you to do, so that's what I did and fortunately he came through that battle with Covid and pneumonia which obviously rocked him a little bit."

      The Liverpool legend scored 13 times in 40 games for Wales before twice becoming national team boss, in 1994 and from 2004 to 2010.

      In all he has taken charge of more than a dozen clubs around the world and famously led Swansea from the old Division Four to the First Division in his first managerial post.

      His most recent job was as manager of Persian Gulf Pro League side Tractor, which he left in September 2018 after just three months in charge.
