Nou Camp side welcome back manager.

Check in to Celta de Vigo vs FC Barcelona

Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova will make a return to the Nou Camp having been away in New York since January undergoing cancer treatment.

“Tito is back at Barcelona,” the La Liga leaders confirmed via their official website, adding that he would ease himself gradually back into running the side.

“It’s expected that Jordi Roura and Aureli Altimira, who accompanied (Vilanova) on his return flight, will take the afternoon training session. Tito Vilanova will rejoin the first team progressively,” a club statement read.

During his spell away Barcelona have been knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Real Madrid and had to overcome a two goal deficit to ease past AC Milan in the Champions League but still sit some 13 points clear of their arch rivals in the La Liga title race.

The 44 year old’s first challenge will come on Saturday when Barcelona take on Celta Vigo.
