Barcelona director Carles Rexach has revealed that coach Tito Vilanova will return to work on March 25.

Vilanova has been missing from the touchline since December following the return of his throat cancer.

However, the 44-year-old will resume taking charge of the first team before the end of the month having undergone treatment.

"Tito will return on March 25," Rexach told Catalan television network TV3.

Barcelona are currently 13 points clear at the top of the La Liga table, while they are also through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
