Football manager Guardiola dismisses Real Madrid complaints

3rd May 2011 - Alma Shera

Barcelona football manager Pep Guardiola says that Real Madrid have no right to complain about the actions of his players ahead of tonight's decisive Champions League match.

After a fiery first leg of the semi-final tie, which saw Barcelona win 2-0 thanks to goals from Lionel Messi, both teams made complaints to Uefa over the conduct of the opposition players.

European football's governing body dismissed the allegations and football manager Guardiola has backed Uefa's stance.

He said: "They can present all the complaints they like, but Uefa are the ones who decide.

"They think we are unsporting, but I think completely the opposite. Here we teach our players manners from a young age."

Barcelona are also favourites to beat Real to the Spanish league title after both teams lost domestic football games at the weekend.

The Catalans therefore remain eight points clear of their rivals with just four soccer games left.
