Van Bronckhorst on Vilanova, 'special' Wembley

Giovanni van Bronckhorst tells UEFA.com why it was "very important" for FC Barcelona to appoint Tito Vilanova, assesses their start to Group G and eulogises about Wembley.

UEFA.com caught up with ex-FC Barcelona left-back Giovanni van Bronckhorst at the recent UEFA coach education student exchange seminar in Nyon.

In a quick-fire interview, the 37-year-old, a UEFA Champions League winner with the Blaugrana in 2006, discussed Barcelona's perfect start to Group G, why it was logical for Tito Vilanova to succeed Josep Guardiola as coach and what makes Wembley such a "special" venue for the club.
