Barcelona coach Guardiola defends Real Madrid rival Pellegrini

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has jumped to the defence of Real Madrid rival Manuel Pellegrini.

Guardiola has been watching from afar as Pellegrini struggles to cope with the expectations at Real this season.

"We have a liking for the same work. Those people who criticise do not understand that a Treble is not won in October. It takes time, it is a long process," said Guardiola.

"I really wish him good luck because he deserves it, he really is a great coach."
