Xabi Alonso was sent off against el Xakhtar Donetsk last Tueday, and on Friday he appeared in the press room in Munich. Guardiola was asked about this issue and he had no problem to say that "Xabi Alonso is the worst in the world when he has to defend."
The sentence was so hard because he coach from Santpedor said that "Bayern didn't sign him for this. We singed him because he could control the game. If he has the ball, he's the best in the world. We play to have the most possession," explaining the function of the Vasque player in the team.
At last he insisted in the compatibility between Alonso and Schweinsteiger on the midfield. "They both are smart and they can play together with no problems with the football idea that we want." In Bundesliga, Guardiola's players control very hard.
