The Guardiola era ended with the 14th trophy in four years as FC Barcelona defeated Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey Final at the Vicente Calderón with first half goals from Pedro (2) and Messi. In the last home game of the Liga season, the derby against Espanyol, the fans were able to thank Josep Guardiola for all of the success he had brought the Club. “Life has given me this gift” he said. “You do not know how much love and happiness this home of mine has given me. Thank you to absolutely every one of you.”
