Barca give Pep perfect send-off

Pep Guardiola signed off from his time as Barcelona manager in style last night winning the 14th trophy of his four year spell at Camp Nou.

Barca ran riot in the opening 25 minutes to cruise to a 3-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao.

Barcelona started with real intent and might have already been 2-0 up before Pedro fired them in front after just three minutes.

Lionel Messi doubled Barca’s advantage after 20 minutes. Remarkably it was his 73rd goal in all competitions this season.

The game was effectively ended as a contest just five minutes later when Pedro grabbed his second and Barcelona’s third.
