Barcelona coach Guardiola: I could never doubt Messi

After victory over Real Zaragoza, Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola says he never had doubts about Lionel Messi's form. Messi was back to his best in the 6-1 thrashing and Guardiola remarked afterwards: "Leo is a person who would play at all hours.

"When he's not quite at his best, we all should support him, because this is a collective game. He should always be encouraged," said Guardiola. "For me, Messi will never create doubts."

On hat-trick hero Seydou Keita, Guardiola added: "He deserves every accolade that comes his way - and more."
