Football speaks the same language around the world

The biggest critic of Messi is Messi. I know when I do things correctly and when I do them poorly. I’m my No.1 critic.

I don’t like comparisons, who am I to compare myself to someone else? I do my job and when [my career] is over we’ll see how well I’ve done.

It’s crazy that I’m compared to athletes like Michael Jordan, Usain Bolt or Muhammad Ali.

What I do know is that Pep has a method of working. It’s not necessary to transfer Barça’s system to Bayern, but I am sure that there will be certain aspects that he can offer them. Bayern have won four Champions Leagues without playing like Barcelona.
Tito Vilanova
I don’t think people will expect Bayern to play the same as Barcelona, there will be similar aspects but they won’t have to play the same way. Barça have always used players from their cantera, I don’t know about Bayern’s youth system, so I don’t know if Pep will be able to use it.
Tito Vilanova
Pep has a method of coaching, like all the coaches that have come through at Barca. He doesn’t necessarily have to give that up.
Tito Vilanova
It’s great news for the Bundesliga. They are one of the great teams that Pep could have gone to. He will help German football a lot. The best coach in the world has to be coaching, and next season he will.

I’m not worried that some [Barça] players want to go to Guardiola’s Bayern. I’m not worried, they have contracts.
Tito Vilanova
Madrid are capable of winning every game in the second half of the season and we are capable of losing those points. We are not talking about four games, there are a lot of games left. I know that things can change very quickly. As soon as you lose two games, you look worse as a coach.
Tito Vilanova
No, the [league] title race isn’t over [for Real Madrid], but if the situation was the other way around, I woudn’t be here to answer that question.
Tito Vilanova
It’s great news that Pep is eager and ready to return. Football needs the best trainer to coach again. I’m sure it will go very well for him wherever he goes.
Tito Vilanova
I feel very much part of what was done before and therefore I’m competing against myself. The 5-0 win over Madrid and the Champions League final in London are the highlights of my time with Pep.
Tito Vilanova
I haven’t won anything. On a general level I would lose in any comparison with Guardiola.
Tito Vilanova
The national team changed. For things to go well it depends on everybody involved, not just one player. And it’s not as if things were only going badly for me before, things weren’t right with the national team as a whole, for whatever reason.
Lionel Messi
Thank God things began looking up for both Abidal and Tito. Though he [Vilanova] has still got to keep us his treatment, all the signs are good. That’s what matters most.
