Barcelona president Sandro Rosell stands by coach Tito Vilanova after their Champions League humbling by Bayern Munich.

Vilanova chose to leave out Lionel Messi as Bayern thumped Barca 3-0 at the Nou Camp to reach the final 7-0 on aggregate.

Rosell said: "If they decided that he shouldn't play, it was a purely technical decision. Nothing else to say."
