Barcelona coach Vilanova: We've shown we're the best

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova was delighted for his players after winning the title.

Vilanova feels they were the outstanding team in Spain by some distance.

"We've been the better team in La Liga, without a doubt. We knew that we had to win as many points as possible at the start of the season because big teams usually drop points in the first games of the year. We started off well and that gave us a good advantage. After that, when everyone said the league was already won, we were mentally strong to hold of a Real Madrid side that played an exceptional second half of the season," he said.

"Winning La Liga a year after not winning it is fantastic!"

When asked to rate the team's year, Vilanova said, "A season where you win the league title is always a good season. We lament the fact that we were unable to compete better in the Champions League. Next year will be even more difficult but we'll try to win it."
