Football manager Pep Guardiola celebrates 'tough' league title

12th May 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Barcelona have secured their third consecutive La Liga title with two football games of the season remaining.

After securing a 1-1 draw at Levante, Barca sit six points clear of rivals Real Madrid with a better head-to-head record.

Football manager Pep Guardiola was delighted to have finally secured the title having led the table for most of the season, but he admitted that it has been tough in the last few months.

He said: "We have been tremendous for three quarters of the season but in the last quarter we have struggled to score goals.

"If we have experienced a dip in form towards the end of the season, it is because of the inhuman schedule over the last two years. We have barely stopped."

In the three years Guardiola has been football manager, Barcelona have so far won three league titles and one Champions League, and they have the chance to add a second against Manchester United at Wembley on May 28th.
