Former Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff has praised the Catalan giants' current coach Pep Guardiola following the club's excellent start to the campaign. Guardiola replaced Frank Rijkaard in the summer and Barca have responded by scoring 34 goals in their first ten La Liga games of the campaign, culminating in the 6-0 demolition of Valladolid at the Nou Camp on Saturday. An impressed Cruyff said: "He's doing really well, going step by step, doing things as he believes they should be done. "He's aware of all the details, and he always tries to get the most out of every player. It's a pleasure to see him on the bench. "He tries to make the games enjoyable for the people, and that's a real added bonus. It's not just about winning the match, it's something else. And that is what gives you the most pride."
