FULL TIME : BARCELONA 1 - 0 APOEL NICOSIA The centre-back proved to be the difference as Luis Enrique's first European game in charge of the Catalan club ended with a win. Gerard Pique headed in the only goal of the game as Barcelona opened their Champions League campaign with a low-key 1-0 victory over APOEL on Wednesday. Pique nodded home in the 28th minute to help Barca - and their new head coach Luis Enrique - kick off their Group F campaign with maximum points, although the determined Cypriot side offered a sterner test than many had predicted. The Spanish giants' triumph ultimately continued a 100 per cent start to the tenure of Enrique, who took the reins following Gerardo Martino's ill-fated campaign at the helm in 2013-14. Having managed to once again align a defensive nous with the kind of possessional dominance that was the hallmark of the Pep Guardiola years, Barcelona are beginning to look imposing. Unsurprisingly, they had too much for APOEL, with Barca's excellent defence - who have yet to ...
All attention is now on Brazil for the world biggest single sporting event, the World Cup. To be hosted by the samba nation The Super Eagles of Nigeria is among the 32 nations that will strive for glory. I give my full support to our national team as they don't just fly our national colours but go for honours in Brazil. We might not have a fecund goalscorer like C. Ronaldo, a midfield maestro like Lionel Messi, an off and on the pitch midfield general like Frank Lampard, rugged midfielder like Yaya Toure, versatile wingers like Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale and Mesut Ozil, no nonsense defenders like Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, David Luiz or Garry Cahill not to mention best safe hands like Iker Casilas, Gianluigi Buffon, Petr Cech, Victor Valdes and Thibaut Courtois. Neither do we have world class coach like Felipe Scolari, Vincent del Bosque, Sir Alex Ferguson, Pep Guardiola, Louis van Gaal, Rafael Benitez or Jose Mourinho. But we have one thing called the Nigerian Team Spirit.
In 2001 he managed a Barcelona under-13s side that included Cesc Fabregas, Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi. And just over a decade later he coached the same three players to the Spanish league title. Messi had become the best in the world; Pique and Fabregas had become World Cup winners with Spain; and Vilanova had become Barcelona manager. Twice he arrived at the club alongside Pep Guardiola: first as a young hopeful in its La Masia academy in 1984; and then to coach alongside him in 2007 first winning the third division with the B-team and then taking over the first team and bringing home 14 of a possible 19 trophies in the greatest four seasons in the club’s history. barcelona and the fans we always think of you
Gerard Pique and Gerardo Martino both played down the potentially explosive impact of another ‘Copa clasico’ final after Barcelona’s 1-1 semifinal second leg draw at Real Sociedad sent the Catalan side through 3-1 on aggregate to meet Real Madrid in this season’s Copa del Rey decider. and Real Madrid last met in the Copa del Rey final in 2011, when Los Blancos triumphed. ENDTomas: Clasico confirmed • Rigg: Clasico awaits Real • Train: Madrid stroll into final The “storm of clasicos” in 2011 saw the rivalry between the two reach a nadir. With Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola on the benches, Madrid won a scrappy Copa del Rey final at the Mestalla through a Cristiano Ronaldo header, but Barca won La Liga and progressed to the Champions League final after two controversial semifinal games -- leading to Mourinho claiming a conspiracy reaching as far as UNICEF had denied his side. This year’s Copa final is set to return to Valencia, and to be played in April, on either Friday 18 or Saturday 19. ...
Are Barcelona moving away from Tiki Taka? The Catalans have adopted a more direct approach at times this term, particularly on the road, but are they really ditching the style that made them great under Pep Guardiola? "We don't play Tiki Taka," Pep Guardiola growled. "I don't like that expression - it seems as if we are discrediting our opponents." That was back in 2010-11, at the height of Barcelona's brilliance under the Catalan coach. But call it what you will, back then the Blaugrana boasted a clear playing philosophy admired and recognised throughout the world. Gerard Pique looked back in an interview with European Sports Media this week. "With Pep, we had an identity," he recalled. "We played the same way in Granada, in Malaga, on pitches full of puddles... the team really believed in Pep." One of the most frank footballers at Camp Nou, Pique is not afraid to speak his mind. The defender got himself into trouble last season with former Barca boss Tito Vilanova after the Blaugrana were humbled by Bay ...

Guardiola wanted to sell Fabregas, Pique, Villa & Dani Alves The 41-yr-old felt the quartet did not fit into the Blaugrana team for a variety of reasons, but the club feared a backlash from supporters if they had departed. FIFA agent Francois Gallardo has claimed that Pep Guardiola would have stayed at Barcelona, had the club sanctioned the sales of Cesc Fabregas, Gerard Pique, Dani Alves, & David Villa. The coach called time on his four-year spell in charge at Camp Nou in may, citing exhaustion & a need to recharge his batteries. However, according to the representative, he could have remained in his post, but club president Sandro Rosell saw the quartet as untouchable. Pep did nt seem committed to Fabregas, Pique & Alves, while the reasons for Villa leaving were sporting. He was especially disappointed in Cesc as a person, as he had refused to shake his hand when he signed. These players were regarded as untouchable, & the fans would not have accepted the sale.

Messi’s from the famous class of 1987, a contemporary of Gerard Pique and Cesc Fabregas. In his early days with the big boys, the little Argentine nearly chose the wrong path. He used to traipse after Ronaldinho when the Brazilian hit the town. One day he was pulled aside. “You’ve two options,” said Pep Guardiola, who was coach of Barcelona’s B Team at the time. “Either you keep on partying, and you’ll be out of here in days. Or you start eating properly, quit the alcohol, go to bed early and come to practice on time. Only then might you become the best in the world.”

Ten-man Barcelona rounded off their ultimately disappointing Liga campaign with a 2-2 draw against Real Betis at the Benito Villamartin on Saturday as Seydou Keita's injury- time equaliser cancelled out a late Ruben Castro double in Pep Guardiola's final league game in charge of the Catalans. Sergio Busquets grabbed the first goal for the visitors by heading in from a corner as Barcelona looked in a commanding position at half-time. However, Dani Alves' sending off after the break proved to be a turning point as Castro scored two goals to give the home team the lead late on. Nevertheless, Seydou Keita's injury-time header prevented Guardiola from bowing out in La Liga on a sour note. Barca made a fairly bright start to proceedings and provided Betis with an early warning when Lionel Messi played a wonderful through-ball in the seventh minute into the path of Ibrahim Afellay. However, Casto Espinosa was alert enough to storm out of his goalmouth to clear what could have been the opening strike of the game. ...

Pep Guardiola will turn to Gerard Pique as the Barcelona boss tries to find a way to keep Didier Drogba quiet.
Camp Nou, Barcelona by Jerrad Peters Both sides come into Saturday’s Clasico with close to full squads, which is unusual for this stage of the season. Striker David Villa (tibia) has missed all of 2012 for Barcelona and is in a race to recover in time for Euro 2012 while winger Ibrahim Afellay, having only recently been given clearance to resume full training, is unlikely to even be on the bench for Real Madrid’s visit. Left-back Eric Abidal underwent a liver transplant last week and there is no timetable for his return. The only pressing concern for Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola involves Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez, who picked up a minor leg injury against Chelsea in the Champions League and may be forced to start from the bench. Should that happen, Pedro (one of only four players to have scored more than one Clasico goal over the past 12 months) will likely play from the beginning. Guardiola is also expected to restore Gerard Pique to the centre of defense on Saturday. The 6-foot-4 25-year-old ...
