Guardiola plays down influence on Barcelona stars Xavi, Messi

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has played down his influence on their superb start to the season.

With Barca sitting atop the standings, Guardiola says: "We're happy where we are. But it's the first week of November.

"The prestige coaches receive should always be passed onto the players. It is difficult to understand my influence when you have players like Xavi and (Lionel) Messi playing the way they are."
