'To win a league is extremely difficult' - Pep Guardiola pays tribute to his Barcelona side after they clinch La Liga title

The Catalan coach was keen to praise his players for their third successive La Liga title win after the club grabbed a 1-1 draw against Levante
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has paid tribute to his side and stated they will enjoy their La Liga title win after the Catalan giants earned a 1-1 draw with Levante to be crowned champions.

The result leaves Guardiola's side six points clear of Real Madrid with only two games to play and a better head-to-head record against Jose Mourinho's men. This is the third season in a row that the club have won the La Liga title, underlining their dominance.

Despite successfully defending the trophy, Guardiola is fully aware of how tough their task was, paying tribute to his whole squad.

"To win a league is extremely difficult. Everyone has contributed. Now we'll enjoy it," the 40-year-old coach told Canal after the game.

"The success is down to the players. Without them there would be nothing. Winning is difficult so understandably, we are very happy."

Barcelona entertain Deportivo on Sunday where the Camp Nou faithful will be itching to see their champions.

The club then have a chance to complete a memorable double when they compete against Manchester United at Wembley for the Champions League trophy on May 28.
