Tito Vilanova has offered to leave his job at Barcelona, it has been revealed.Sport says Vilanova twice offered to walk away from the post as he recovered from his chemotherapy.

The coach first made an approach at Christmas, then at the end of last season after winning the Liga.

But both times Barca turned the gesture down, with president Sandro Rosell assuring Vilanova that they wanted him as head coach and he would continue to receive their full support during his recovery.
