Tito Not Focused On 100-Point Haul

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova says that a 100-point haul is not a priority for them as they near the end of the season.

The Catalans could equal Real Madrid's record tally of 100 points if they manage to win their final three game but Vilanova is more concerned about seeing his side perform well and finishing on a positive foot.

"Our priority is winning the league," he said. "We have the chance to reach the record total and we're Barcelona, but what's important is putting on a good performance. That's more important than the 100 points.

"We were top of the league from the first week to the last. We've scored more goals than any other team in Europe. Talk that we're on the wane isn't true, although perhaps we haven't won as many trophies. There's always room for improvement but we can't always excel ourselves."

The coach also played down the incident between Alex Song and Gerard Pique during the open-top bus parade, where Carles Puyol had to separate the two.

"There are many people who have their opinion," he said. "There'll always be someone who doesn't agree. The team behaved well. You can always do things better, but you have to see it in the context of celebration. If you're talking about Pique or Puyol, they're always joking about in the dressing room."
