The best and worst of Athletic-Barça

BEST: Another title and a great legacy. Pep Guardiola left the club through the front door after his 14 th title harvested in four seasons. The Barcelona coach is fired at the peak of their success and leaving to his successor, Tito Vilanova, a team second to none. The project is exciting now beginning. The Bellcaire, Pep second this time, has been instrumental in this golden age. Like Messi, Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta and co. Or Pedro, happily recovered from the injuries that led him to head all season. And whose goals were so important to win this final. How he had missed.

WORST: The lawn of Calderón. Even the poor condition of the pitch deprived Barça to win this final so placid. The site chosen because of the dubious arguments of the Real Madrid not to give the Bernabéu some works-apparently in the toilet-essential, proved to be the best option. Coldplay concert last Sunday left the grass shattered Athletic Stadium, and the sod replaced that were not optimal. But that was not an obstacle to the azulgranas performs its best game and win the 26th Copa in its history. (via SPORT)
