Barca to battle on minus Vilanova for time being

MADRID - Barcelona will have to continue its march at the top of La Liga without coach Tito Vilanova after the club revealed Wednesday he has suffered a relapse of a tumor for which he received an operation just over a year ago.

The 44-year-old, who took over from Pep Guardiola at the beginning of the season, was thought to have fully recovered from surgery last November to remove the growth on his parotid gland, and he was back at work within 15 days.

However, after an operation on Thursday it is thought he will have treatment for at least six weeks and may not be available to return to work during that time.
