Rosell: Tito to return in 15-20 days

FC Barcelona’s coach Tito Vilanova will return to his post in two to three weeks according to declarations made on Friday by club president Sandro Rosell. Rosell, speaking in Dubai at the Globe Soccer conference, confirmed Vilanova’s positive trajectory, adding that the coach will initially “combine his work with the first team squad and his cancer treatment…the most important thing is his health. At this stage football must come second.” If Rosell’s time frame is correct, it would mean that Tito would miss the Liga derby with Espanyol on January 6 and the Copa match with Cordoba on January 10, but would likely return in time for the Liga matches against Malaga and Real Sociedad later that month. Keep your fingers crossed!
