Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova insists that he still has the desire to continue in his role next season following his recent health issues.

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova has insisted that he still has the desire to continue in his role next season following his recent treatment for cancer.

The 44-year-old underwent parotid gland surgery in December before returning to the dugout last month.

"I have a real desire and drive to carry on next season," Vilanova is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"Now I am great after the process that I have been through. I did not come back earlier because of the side effects, but I feel better every day. I really want to train again and to be in the press room.

"On the subject of me staying on I feel strong and am looking forward to next season. At no time have I thought about leaving. When I have time off I get bored. This is my life and I do not feel under any pressure."

Barcelona could clinch the La Liga title on Saturday if they beat Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid lose to local rivals Atletico Madrid.
