Barcelona's Thiago warns against complacency

Published Add your comment

Barcelona midfielder Thiago has warned his teammates not to be complacent when it comes to lifting their fourth La Liga title in the space of five years.

Tito Vilanova's side are currently 13 points ahead of nearest rivals Real Madrid, but have one eye on the Champions League with a semi-final tie against Bayern Munich on the horizon.

With the two-legged tie in mind, Vilanova decided to rest stars Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique for their 3-0 win at Zaragoza.

Thiago, who started and scored the opener on Sunday, told Barcelona's official website: "We want to win La Liga as soon as possible, but the race isn't over yet.

"There are a lot of points still in play and we can't assume that this is a done deal."

The midfielder was particularly pleased with the way his side battled to claim the three points against a side who are fighting against relegation. 

"Every team has a lot on the line at this point in the season and they are stronger when they play at home, that's why we're very pleased with today's win," added Thiago.

"We were a complete team today in all aspects of the game, and the score reflects that."

Thiago is likely to be involved in Barcelona's clash against Levante at the weekend as Vilanova looks to save his key players for his side's midweek encounter with Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
