Vanessa Forns

Pep Guardiola was philosophical about the result in Pamplona: “I feel bad about it, but that's part of the game” but was also pleased with the team's attitude in the game.

The injury time goal that took the two points from his team was clearly a tough pill to swallow for the Barca boss, particularly given the chances his team created throughout the game.

“We played well”

“We lost two points right a the end, but that's part of the game. I'm disappointed with the result, but we played very well. I'd like to congratulate Osasuna too. We played a pretty complete game, we were in control and I'm happy with that. Now we have to pick ourselves up and prepare for the Champions League game”.

Long way still to go in the league

The draw is there and that's that, but I think we gave a good account of ourselves”, whilst insisting that: “there's still a long way to go” in the league .

Players won't let the result affect them on Wednesday

As to the players' state of mind, Guardiola commented: “they are upset, especially at not winning when they were so close. Now we have to go into the cold and win in Russia”. However Guardiola assured the fans that the result in Pamplona wouldn't affect the players' for Wednesday's game.
