Madrid: Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova will come back from cancer treatment this week for team training, the Spanish La Liga club said on Monday.

Vilanova has been receiving treatment for cancer in New York since January 22.

Assistant coach Jordi Roura has taken charge of Barcelona in the absence of Vilanova, who first underwent surgery in November 2011.
