Guardiola: Torres perfect for Atletico The coach lauded Diego Simeone's decision to bring the former club captain back to the Vicente Calderon and believes they pose a threat to Bayern's Champions League chances By Miles Chambers Jan 16, 2015 23:36:00 Former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola believes that Atletico Madrid have hit the jackpot by bringing Fernando Torres back to the Vicente Calderon. Torres left La Liga for Liverpool in 2007, one year before Guardiola famously took the reins at Camp Nou, and returned earlier this month on loan from AC Milan having flopped at San Siro and Chelsea before that. Football pundits and fans were split over whether Torres would burden another club with his lack of goals, but he stunned arch-rivals Real Madrid on Thursday by scoring a double to knock the holders out of the Copa del Rey at the last-16 stage. Guardiola, who now coaches Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, believes that the Spain international is perfectly suited to life under Diego Simeone's wing in Madrid. ...
Jose Mourinho better watch out... Atletico Madrid really know how to park the bus They have already done it to Real Madrid, Barcelona and AC Milan this season so it’s little wonder Atletico Madrid fans believe their team can pick up a 1-0 win on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge. If anyone can out-Chelsea Chelsea, then it’s the team with the meanest defence in both La Liga and the Champions LeagueDiego Simeone’s side have won 1-0 nine times this season, managing it at the San Siro and the Santiago Bernabeu. ‘We want to be annoying,’ says the Argentine coach. ‘We want to be a team that no-one can stand playing against.’ Sound familiar? No wonder when Simeone was asked to pick between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, when both coaches were plying their trade in La Liga alongside him, he plumped for Mourinho. Liverpool had that sinking feeling on Sunday when Demba Ba put Chelsea one up — there were still 45 minutes left but they knew the job in hand was bordering on impossible. In two o ...
::: SOCCER NEWS ::: Pep Guardiola conceded Bayern Munich were forced to ride out an early storm before beating 10-man Arsenal 2-0 in the UEFA Champions League. The defending German and European champions will take a healthy advantage into their home leg of the last-16 tie, but such comfort appeared unlikely as Arsenal tore into their illustrious visitors during the opening exchanges on Wednesday. Clarence Seedorf has called on Milan to believe, despite a 1-0 first-leg defeat to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League last 16. After a shaky start on Wednesday, Milan grew in confidence and began to dominate the San Siro clash, and they should have been ahead at the break after creating a number of excellent first-half chances. Netherlands head coach Louis van Gaal said Robin Van Persie's struggles at club level could help him perform at the World Cup in Brazil. Van Persie, and Manchester United, have endured a tough season, and despite scoring 10 goals in 15 Premier League outings - including seven goa ...

Manchester City's Manuel Pellegrini accuses referee of favouring Barcelona • Pellegrini says Jonas Eriksson failed to control game • Referee 'remedied' previous errors, City manager says Soccer - UEFA Champions League - Round of 16 - Manchester City v Barcelona - Etihad Stadium Manuel Pellegrini stares into the distance after Manchester City's defeat by Barcelona in the Champions League. Photograph: Peter Byrne/PA A furious Manuel Pellegrini accused the referee, Jonas Eriksson, of deciding Barcelona's 2-0 win over Manchester City in the Champions League by rectifying mistakes made when officiating a previous tie involving the Catalan club. The match Pellegrini referred to was a quarter-final two years ago at San Siro between Barcelona and Milan that ended goalless, with the former coach, Pep Guardiola, complaining about two penalties Eriksson failed to award his side. After Barça won Tuesday's last-16 opening leg at the Etihad, Pellegrini claimed that Martín Demichelis's second-half challenge on Lio ...
The end of an era? For the first time since the spring of 2002 when Zinedine Zidane and company put forth a magisterial performance at the Camp Nou in that year's Champions League first leg semifinal has a Madrid side dominated Barcelona in the manner that they did in Wednesday night's 1-3 win. The last few visits from Madrid to Barcelona have seen the teams play to more or less even contests, but this Copa second leg semifinal was different, and it could be the end of a title-rich run for Barcelona. Make no mistake; Barcelona will win La Liga so there is at least one more trophy on the way to Catalonia this year, but recent performances including last week in the San Siro and Wednesday night against Madrid begs the question if this is the end of Barcelona's golden era. It is now 12 matches in a row that the Barcelona defense has allowed a goal which would have been an unthinkable statistic had it happened under Pep Guardiola's watchful eye. In attack, Barcelona have looked much more like the side in Fran ...
How much longer can Barcelona go on without a coach? The Catalan club suffered a damaging defeat at AC Milan on Wednesday and looked to lack motivation. With no Pep Guardiola and now no Tito Vilanova, the situation is far from ideal By Ben Hayward | Spanish Football Writer It is occasionally argued Barcelona do not need a coach. So deeply ingrained is the Catalans' passing game, it is claimed, at any one time, each player knows exactly where his team-mates will be, where to play the ball and what to do next - like a kind of telepathic tiki-taka. It sounds good in theory, but Wednesday's damaging defeat at AC Milan proved that argument is simply not valid. Barca looked lacking in motivation at San Siro; the Catalans had the ball but did little with it and barely shot at goal in the entire 90 minutes. The stars failed to shine, Lionel Messi was consumed by anonymity instead, team lethargy replaced the normal vibrant, energetic side. It was desperately disappointing, their poorest performance in recent memo ...

Silvio Berlusconi says he has tried to lure Pep Guardiola to AC Milan AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi is still keen to lure Pep Guardiola to the San Siro - but admits the chances of him joining are slim. The 41-year-old left Barcelona in the summer after winning two Champions Leagues and three Primera Division titles in a four year spell in charge at the Nou Camp. Guardiola moved to New York to take a year sabbatical, but that has not stopped him from being linked with a host of top clubs throughout Europe.

"I don't have a team to go to but I would like to go back to coaching," he said. "I have taken a decision to return to coaching but beyond that no decision has been taken." Milan are one of those linked and Berlusconi says they continue to be interested in Guardiola. Massimiliano Allegri's side currently sit seventh in Serie A and the 76-year-old admits th ...

MY PREVIEW OF BARCELONA vrs AC MILAN Tactical recap of the first leg: Barcelona were poised to beat Milan at San Siro but the occupants of the fashion capital of Europe had other ideas; they watered the pitch meaning it was going to be difficult for Barca to demonstrate their tiki-taka football. Pep Guardiola presented a 'hidden' 4-3-3 formation which sometimes looked like a 3-4-3 formation with CARLOS PUYOL joining MASCH and PUYOL in central defence when Barca had the ball whilst Dani Alves joined the midfield. Max Allegri on the other hand opted for a 4-3-1-2 formation, three central midfielders working hand in hand to curtail Barca from dominating in midfield. The Milan midfield orchestrated by a certain Clarence Seedorf PRESSED very hard especially high up the field when Barca tried to 'play from the back'. Both sides did not take their chances although MILAN could have easily won on the day. MASSIMO AMBROSINI did a great job by sticking to Lionel Messi like a glue whilst PHILIPPE MEXES was also on ha ...
Pep Guardiola said his Barcelona team will need to score at least two goals at the Camp Nou next week if they are to oust AC Milan and reach the Champions League semi-finals. The Italian and Spanish champions played out a 0-0 draw at the San Siro on Wednesday, leaving next week's quarter-final second leg finely poised. And having failed to *** an away goal to take back to Catalunya, the Spaniards' boss is worried that one goal at home will not be enough. "I think we have to score more than one to go through and we'll try to do that," he said. "Scoring away gives you a lot, but they were lucky because they didn't even get one free-kick around the box or a corner. "They're a very strong team and I imagine one goal won't be enough. "The (Nou Camp) pitch will be better, it will be faster and I hope we'll play well." Although they failed to score, Guardiola insisted that a draw away from home is a good result. "At the beginning of the season if you had offered me a Champions League quarter-final with a 0-0 .. ...
Pep Guardiola refuses to blame referee and San Siro pitch for Barcelona's Champion League draw with
Pep Guardiola was scathing in his criticism of the San Siro pitch after Wednesday's 0-0 draw
'Great teams are above complaining' 29 Mar 2012 10:52:35 Great teams are above complaining, Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola said as he tried to avoid criticising a dreadful San Siro pitch and controversial refereeing during his team's 0-0 Champions League quarterfinal first leg draw wish AC Milan on Wednesday. "To win the Champions League, you have to overcome a lot of things, that's what makes some sportsmen better than others," Guardiola told reporters. "Things happen and you have to overcome then." "We have won a lot in the last four years, but we have also drawn and lost matches. "After a draw or defeat, we have never complained about a refereeing decision or the pitch, maybe we have done so after winning but not after a draw or defeat." Barcelona players felt they should have had a penalty early in the match when forward Alexis Sanchez appeared to be tripped by Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati. Their players also struggled to keep their footing on a San Siro pitch where huge divots were frequently th ...
