Van Bronckhorst on Vilanova, 'special' 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.
