Guardiola: Thanks for the title Madrid

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has congratulated rivals Real Madrid for having an excellent season and for pushing them all the way.
He believes that his team would not have gotten the record-breaking 99 points and lost only a single game if not for Real Madrid's chase in the title race which went all the way to the last day of the season.
"Without a Madrid so good we would not have gotten 99 points and without a strong Barca, Real Madrid would not have had so many points. They have plenty of money and are able to make great squads but will again be our biggest rivals next year," he said in an interview with AS.
He said: "I congratulate the coach and players of Real Madrid, because they have dignified the profession and the league. And again, I congratulate them, but only them, the coach and the players, only them," he stated.
"These players are an empire, they are unique. They make hard things easy. Getting 99 points and losing only one game is incredible. All thanks to the players. They are incredible,"
Guardiola concluded by thanking the fans for their support and reiterated that Lionel Messi is undoubtedly the best player on the planet.
