Vilanova has built on Guardiola's past success with Barca this season.

“The way we work and prepare for games is much the same” Messi claimed. “What has changed is that Guardiola and Tito have different personalities, different ways of handling the squad … They each have their own ideas and style … But when it comes to playing and coaching, things are much the same as they have been for the last four years."
