Referees not to blame says Guardiola

Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola believes it is not the fault of the referees for his side’s 10-point deficit behind league leaders Real Madrid, but the Barca players and coaching staff who are to blame as they have not done their job well enough.

There has been much debate in recent weeks over alleged favouritism shown by match officials to both Real Madrid and Barca in certain games and speaking at a Press conference on Friday, Guardiola tried to put the issue into perspective.

“If we are not first in the table it is not the fault of the referees, it’s ours,” he insisted. “The players believe they are capable of winning the league but I see it as very difficult. We are a long way off the leaders and Madrid never slip up. But despite everything, we will not throw in the towel.”
