Barcelona's coach Tito Vilanova wanted to put an end to the rumours surrounding Messi and Villa, affirming that "they get on perfectly well and a public demonstration isn't necessary." He also said a sector of the press was responsible for the fact that the players' disagreement at Celtic Park would be news. "If you keep digging around, you'll probably find something."
"I didn't see it. I know what you were saying. What I know is that the relationship I see between the two is very normal. They get on perfectly well; a public demonstration isn't necessary. Things happen on the pitch in all teams. I know there's a section that want to search and dig things up. Carry on, carry on; you'll probably find something", he said.
On the team's game: "Defeats are a part of the game. What we have to think about is what we've done well and where we can improve."
Puyol: "In principle Puyol won't travel. Yesterday was his first training. He was able to train but it's too soon risk him having contact."
Sendings-off: "I don't know what happened in every situation, but I know what happened in mine. I know what I said to the linesman and the referee and I've already told you."
Spain: "Del Bosque can choose the players he wants. He does what he sees fit and the fact that he's chosen eight Barça players I think is good."
