MADRID (SPAIN) – "A 'Clasico' is always special and there are no favorites. In any case, Barcelona play at home and it has its weight ". Interviewed by Univision, the US-based Spanish television network, Pep Guardiola talks about the challenge between Barça and Real, of which he has been the protagonist for many years, first on the bench and then on the bench. To the detriment of the guests, according to Guardiola, there is another factor.
"With Cristiano Ronaldo or without him, Real Madrid remains a top club – he says – but has lost a lot, 50 or 60 goals. He is an incredible player, not only for the goals he scores but also for the assists and the bets he plays in important moments. Let's face it, it's irreplaceable ". Then the former 'blaugrana' coach points out that "Madrid started well, now life has been complicated and it is going through a difficult period but it will continue to be among the best".
"The truth – he concludes – is that Spanish football has had a great fortune in enjoying these two incredible players (Cristiano and Messi ndr) for ten years, which have helped the Liga to grow".
