Tito Vilanova: His Barca side hold a 13-point La Liga lead

Vilanova has spent the past two months in New York undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy following surgery on his parotid gland in December, returning to Spain on Tuesday.

The 44-year-old had suffered a relapse after first having a tumour removed from his throat in November 2011.

His return came as a boost to the runaway Primera Division leaders, who hold a 13-point lead at the top of the table.

Vilanova was shown in video footage on Barcelona's website helping to orchestrate the late-afternoon session.

Jordi Roura, who has been in charge of the team in Vilanova's absence, said at an earlier press conference that Vilanova would not attend Saturday's league match away to Celta Vigo.

However the club confirmed that providing Vilanova is well enough, he could be in the Barcelona travelling party for next Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg at Paris Saint-Germain.

Roura said: "The boss is back and that's always important. It'll be a boost for the squad."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
