Soccer-Barcelona coach Vilanova to step down, president says (Reuters)

BARCELONA, July 19 (Reuters) – Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova is to step down due to ill health with immediate effect as he continues his battle with throat cancer, president Sandro Rosell said on Friday. Vilanova, 44, would be undergoing treatment that meant he will be unable to continue in his current role, Rosell said at a news conference. Barca would probably announce the appointment of a new coach early next week, he added. (Writing by Iain Rogers in Madrid, editing by Alan Baldwin)
