Get Well Soon Skipper - Best Wishes To Petrov

Get Well Soon Skipper - Best Wishes To Petrov

Club statement: Stiliyan Petrov
30-03-2012

The Villa Board received news today that our long-standing captain Stiliyan Petrov has been diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia.

Stiliyan developed a fever following the Arsenal game last Saturday and subsequently underwent tests conducted by Dr Ian McGuinness.

Haematology experts confirmed the diagnosis today.

We expect to learn more about Stiliyan's situation in due course and we have moved quickly to support him and his family.

During this time we ask that Stiliyan's privacy is placed ahead of all inquiries and trust that we will share information as we receive it.

Stiliyan is cherished by many and he will get from Villa every ounce of love and support that we have to help bring this to a positive conclusion.

Petrov in action

Just awful awful news.

This guy is a true gent, I've met him through a mutual friend a few times and he cares SO much for the Villa and cares SO much for the fans.

One of those true gents, true players and a real Club Captain.

Always the nice guys isn't it.

Echo Fears comments. Have been fortunate enought to spend time in his company. Was fortunate enough to sponsor a game against Sunderland a few years ago (we won 2 1 with a Young free kick) and I awarded the MOTM to Stan. He was brilliant after the game and on every other occasion since. Stan - get well soon. I am sure the football world will unite in their support for you and your family.
