In Remission: Stiliyan Petrov

aston villa cancer scareAston Villa’s Petrov went on record yesterday to confirm he is now in remission from the disease that left his footie career in limbo.

Although the Bulgarian footballer was not able to greet the AV club masseurs who completed a 400-mile charity cycle ride (in honour of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research) at the finish line, he did send a message of gratitude to all those who supported him during this difficult time:

“I’m fine. It’s been hard and tough so far but, thankfully, everything is going in the right direction. I’ve been looked after really well by the people in the hospital. I’m really grateful to them and to all of the people who have sent me messages of support.”

Good news indeed, Kickettes.

BTW, if you’d like to support the Pedal for Petrov challenge, you can donate via the JustGiving page or text “STAN91 £3″ to 70070.
