Posted on April 01, 2013 by admin

Barcelona have not lost many games since Jordi Roura took over as the stand-in coach while Tito Vilanova went to New York for extensive treatment after his cancer surgery. There was a steady lessening of intensiti, however, and when the crucial run of games against Real Madrid and AC Milan came around, Barca produced their worst performances of the season.

That meant a semi-final exit from the Spanish cup, and very nearly an exit from the Champions League, denying us the chance to be the first team ever to win two continental trebles. The Primera Liga title is still firmly on course, though, and a fifth European cup to go with the 22nd league title would surely erase the disappointment.

Tito Vilanova was back in the Barcelona dugout on Sunday for the first time since his operation to remove a tumour on his Parotid gland. The manager got a fantastic reception from the home crowd at the Nou camp, but he had already ststed that his treatment was ongoing and he would not be taking back total control from his assistant Jordi Roura.

That has become even more clear today after it was announced that Vilanova will not be on the bench tomorrow for the cup game against Cordoba. He will not even be in Spain, as he is flying to America to get some expert medical advice about his condition.
