Guardiola: "Fighting back from four points down is tremendously difficult"
Guardiola: 'It seems as though we already have the La Liga title, but the reality is that four points are a lot of points. There’s a lot of work to do. People need to start doing the math. We do our own calculations. I’m not interested in the calculations done 600 km away. This league title is practically impossible'
Guardiola: 'I still believe that winning La Liga is a practically impossible task. If we want to have the slightest chance at the title, we have to win the seven remaining games left on the schedule. You never know, but it’s evident that we cannot lose points Our job is to think that Luis García’s Getafe are coming tomorrow, they have always made it difficult for us to overcome their fantastic defence; they beat us the first time around'
Guardiola: 'The players know what I’ve told you and what we must do for the rest of the season, and that’s smiling a little less and running a little more. There has been very little relaxation in these players. In order to win we have to run more and when the good times come, smile. What I don’t want is for my players to focus on things they shouldn’t. I want these players to have a good time, smile - but in order to win we have to run'
Guardiola: 'My players say that Barca won’t lose anymore matches for the rest of the year, I don’t know which self-help book they’re getting that from, because we have tough matches coming up. We need to be fresh and very brilliant on defence, where we’re stretched so thin'
