Barcelona boss Guardiola reluctant to discuss signing Villa replacement

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola was reluctant to discuss replacements for David Villa after their Club World Cup win over Al Sadd.

Villa is out for the season after breaking his shin in the semifinal.

Guardiola insisted now was not the time to discuss January reinforcements in the light of Villa's absence.

"Let us have compassion and respect," he said. "Let's give it time. Now is not the time to talk about it."
