Sky Sports Exclusive Interview with Messi
How important has Pep Guardiola been for your development?
A lot. Since Guardiola's arrival, he has made the team play this way. When he arrived he made me play higher up, closer to the goal in order for me to score more goals, which until his arrival I hadn't done so on a regular basis.
He made us prepare better in training and for games, making it seem that every game was a final. He prepares everything with his vision when games are played, and everything he does shows he is the best coach in the world.
How important is Pep Guardiola to the club's continued success and what is it that makes him such a great coach?
Very important. It's the way he demands everything from us in every training session and every game.
He makes sure we don't get complacent so that we keep growing as a team.

I played for several teams in the Greek professional leagues. At the age of 29 I stopped playing and focused on studying football coaching. I have been head coach of several semi-pro football teams and worked as a technical director in the Academies of DOXA Dramas (Greek football league, 2nd division).
I wrote and published two books "4-3-3 the application of the system" and "4-4-2 with diamond in midfield, the application of the system".
I decided to proceed in something more specific so coaches would have an idea of how top teams apply the same systems.
Analysing games tactically is a great love and strength of mine. I think teams only have success when they prepare well tactically.
I have watched Barcelona in most of their league and Champions league matches for the last seven years and less frequently over the past twenty years. I believe that this Barcelona side is by far the best Barcelona I have ever seen. Their attractive style of play and success in winning trophies has made them the best side in the world.
I have analysed Barcelona’s tactics for this book, which together with the teams’ incredible technical ability allows Barca to perform their attractive brand of football.
I watched every Barcelona game in the 2010-11 season creating a set of highly detailed notes on each. I watched many of the matches over 20 times. The matches were separated according to the opposing team’s formation.
These books are made up of over a 1000 hours of extensive tactical research and analysis of Guardiola’s Barcelona side.
Now available, this book set combo is an exclusive and groundbreaking study of Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona team.
We now have a full analysis of Barcelona’s tactics which have been so important to their success. The attacking and defending books show Barca’s 4-3-3 system of play, each player’s responsibilities, positioning and movement within every possible attacking and defensive phase of play.
This gives you an unbelievable chance to learn how Barcelona employ their tactics to maintain possession, create chances, score goals and adapt their tactics to combat any team they play.
