Barcelona's Pep Guardiola: It's 'a true honour' to beat AC Milan at San Siro

The Catalans' head coach was very pleased with his side's performance on Wednesday and is confident they will fight for silverware right until the end

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has expressed his pride with his side's 3-2 Champions League Group H win away against AC Milan.

The Blaugrana head coach was very pleased with the Catalans' performance at San Siro and is confident they can compete for trophies again this season.

"It was a true honour to have beaten such a prestigious team like Milan at the historic San Siro. I'm pleased that the people who watched the game had fun," Guardiola said during the post-match press conference.

"We played a good away game, and now to come here and generate so many chances against such a big team, with such history and tradition... it gives us pride. It’s an honour to beat Milan at San Siro.

"The lads competed to win. I saw things that make me rather optimistic for the future. Once again, I can say that we will compete until the end and try to win something."

Barcelona resume domestic match action on Saturday with an away match versus Getafe.
