Vilanova blasts Real's style
Barcelona's next coach Tito Vilanova has wasted no time in having a go at Real Madrid by suggesting they play unattractive football.
Real claimed the La Liga title on Thursday with victory over Athletic Bilbao, as they now sit seven points clear of Barca with just two games to go.
It has been a superb battle between the two sides that has taken its toll on the Catalans' coach Pep Guardiola, who will step down at the end of the campaign to hand the reigns to his assistant.
Real boss Jose Mourinho has been involved in several verbal spats with Guardiola and other Barca officials and it appears that Vilanova will not take a backward step next season.
He criticised the club's recruitment policy and suggested that the former Chelsea boss does not set up his team to entertain the fans.
"Madrid have always had great players. It's normal with the investment they have made. It's the biggest outlay in history," he said.
"They have signed the players they wanted and more. They have spent more than double what we have spent. But there is nothing in their play that appeals to me."
