Barcelona players appreciated the effort made by coach Pep Guardiola to make their victory over Real Zaragoza.

Guardiola was visibly discomforted by his back injury, but chose to take in the game on the touchline.

"He is very important to us, very important," said goalkeeper Victor Valdes. "I said that without him we are nothing.

"He kept waving us on and he is with us - which always gives us a point of trust."
