MOST COMMENTED

In his first press conference after returning from cancer treatment in the United States, Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova said he felt strong enough to honor his two-year contract. Nevertheless, Marca reports that the Catalan club is preparing a ‘Plan B’ just in case Vilanova is unable to continue next season. The Barca coach was spotted in New York a few days ago for a medical check-up, which won’t be his last as he continues his recovery.

According to the report, the 44-year-old will soon meet with his doctors to discuss whether he is in good enough condition to start a new season. Meanwhile, the La Liga champion, which suffered both domestically and in the UEFA Champions League while Vilanova was in New York recovering from treatment, has been sounding out possible backups. Marca says the club had contacted Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini, but he is rumored to be on his way to Manchester City next season.
