Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova will return to the Nou Camp "this week" from New York, where he has been receiving treatment for cancer, the Spanish giants said on Monday.

"Tito Vilanova will be back in Barcelona this week after two months spent in New York," Barca said on its website.

Vilanova has been Stateside since January 22 to undergo treatment after suffering a relapse of the cancer in his parotid gland towards the end of last year.

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