After facing a few months away from Barcelona due to a relapse in his battle with cancer, Tito Vilanova’s future with the club looked questionable. But the club has officially made it known that the Catalan manager will continue as Barcelona’s man in charge.
Vilanova called a press conference a few days ago, his first since the news of a relapse was announced. In this conference he had these words to say (via ESPN).
“I have the strength and motivation to continue next season. In no moment have I thought of stepping down. Football is my life. I enjoy my job - I am lucky in that."
Barcelona fans can now take a deep breath knowing their manager is back in good health and will be capable of leading the club next season. Vilanova wants to continue for a long time, and Barcelona is happy to let that happen.
Vilanova will have more pressure on him than ever with the need of addressing the problems at Barcelona. But if he is able to fix the glaring weaknesses, he could lead Barcelona to glory again next season.
