VILANOVA EXPECTED IN DUGOUT FOR SUNDAY DERBY…
Recuperating Barcelona coach, Tito Vilanova should be in the dugout for Sunday’s Liga derby match with Espanyol, according to his assistant, Jordi Roura.
Vilanova, 44, who has guided Barcelona to their best start to a league campaign with 15 wins from 16 games prior to his cancer relapse, underwent surgery for a second time on a tumour on a saliva gland on December 20; missing just one match, the away win over Valladolid.
“In principle, he (Vilanova) will be on the bench,” Roura said.
“Tito has still to undergo treatment, but he is well, he is full of courage and strength and that is what is important.” Giztzzz… madetv!
