Pep: “We’ll look at what we can do better”

Roger Bogunyà

Josep Guardiola congratulated Inter on their win tonight, but warned them: “the 90 minutes in the second leg will be very long!” Guardiola insisted that his players would give their all in the return game to turn the result around.

“I’m sure the fans will all be there and we will make those 90 minutes last a long time for Inter. We will look at what we can do better and really prepare the second leg. I’m proud of how the players behaved tonight”, commented Guardiola after the game.

Why did we lose?

Asked about his changing Ibra for Abidal, the boss explained: “Ibra has been 17 or 18 days without playing and he played 10 minutes the other day practically without any training. We’ve played without a recognised centre forward before – in the 2-6 win in the Bernabeu for instance”.

“It’s a miracle - we committed more fouls!”

With Inter’s second goal coming from what looked to be a foul on Messi and their third from an offside position, Guardiola, whose players found it hard to match Inter’s physical approach, commented ironically, “it’s a miracle –we had more fouls blown against us than they did!”
