Vilanova: "Shakhtar comes very close to our style"

Speaking to the club's official media, Barcelona assistant coach Tito Vilanova commented on tonight's European super cup game against Shakhtar Donetsk:

"Shakhtar is a very good team, with a very good coach and they have a very good way of playing.

Both teams have actually a similar style. They are probably the team in the whole of Europe who comes the closest to our ideas. It's also an experienced team. At every moment they know what to do and they know what the options are.

Yesterday, at the end of the training session, Pep gathered everyone on the pitch. He said that despite the fact that everyone is well-aware of the importance of the game, people could lose focus because of the date in pre-season, the venue or the heat, but that this cannot happen. This is a final, a final we want to win to continue the series of trophies won."
