Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has blasted Real Madrid president Vicente Boluda over taunts this week. After the weekend's dramatic results, Boluda declared Barca's four point lead was "only one point" because Real would beat them later this season.

Last night, Guardiola snapped: "He has no ability to affect our spirit. I don't know why he does it.

"I do not want to get into a debate in the press. I don't care what he or others have said. It is not my job. I won't waste my time."

The coach sarcastically added: "He was right in his prediction of the Liverpool game, wasn't he?"
