Felix Magath, known ex player and ex trainer of the German football, spoke in an interview for 'Sport Bild' on the FC Barcelona of Leo Messi and of Pep Guardiola. The ex technician of the Bayern of Munich, of the Schalke 04 or of the Wolfsburgo wanted to leave clear why does not like him the one of Santpedor. The one of Aschaffenburg loaded against the current technician of the Manchester City and his marked style of game.

"It was Messi the one who won the titles in the Barcelona, no Guardiola. Without Messi, this system never would have worked with so much success for Pep", began saying, without pelos in the tongue. The germano considers that the decisive factor that did of this team one of the best of the history always was the one of Rosario and no the Catalan. To argue his opinion, Magath puts of examples the stages of Guardiola in Manchester and Munich.

Messi, with a big affection to Guardiola

"If this was not truth, would have won the Champions with the Bayern or the Manchester City does long. It won only thanks to Lionel Messi, that could change a party going out out of nowhere", commented. The true is that the '10' was definitely the differential factor of this Barça, the same that it has been it with almost all the trainers of his career, but this would not have to subtract merits to the enormous work of Pep, that did that all the players surrendered to his best level.

Although the one of Santpedor won it everything in the Bayern, except the League of Champions, and has gone back it to win everything in the City, to exception again of the 'Orejona', for the ex German trainer this is insufficient and attacks his way to train. "Generally, it is used to to lose in his obstinacy for wanting to win a party before beginning. Situate the tactics above all else, finishes in errors that prevent the success", affirmed.

Magath Continued his lynching against Pep and ensured that his form to understand the game is bored and that a big club does not need to play of this way to win titles. "This only works if have players technically upper to his rivals. For the viewer, have the ball and do it turn, is simply boring. A team of high level does not need this", declared.

Magath Sees to Guardiola very far to be the best of the world

The words of this known figure of the football germano are surprising, since perhaps any professional had spoken so bad of Guardiola up to now. He has left clear that does not agree in at all with his style of football neither with his way to train and has subtracted him merits to his career. For many is the best technician of the world, but has remained clear that for others is very far to be it.
