BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -Barcelona assistant coach Jordi Roura says manager Tito Vilanova will direct Friday's practice, his first since returning from a 10-week medical stay in New York.

Roura says Vilanova will not travel with the team to Vigo for Saturday's Spanish league match against Celta Vigo.

Vilanova returned home on Tuesday after receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy in a New York hospital following surgery to remove a second throat tumor in two years in late December.

Barcelona visits Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday in the Champions League quarterfinals.

It leads the Spanish league by 13 points.
