Pep Guardiola has revealed he will speak to Barcelona president Sandro Rosell about how the club moves forward from their shock Champions League semi-final exit to Chelsea.

The Catalans went into last night's second leg on the back of successive defeats, losing 1-0 to Chelsea in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge and then suffering a home loss to arch rivals Real Madrid.

Barcelona's winless run stretched to three games at the Nou Camp as the Blues somehow overcame John Terry's first-half sending off to secure a 2-2 draw and progress to the Munich finale 3-2 on aggregate.

Asked what he was going to do now, Guardiola said: "We will speak with Tito [Vilanova, assistant manager] and see what we have to do.

"Right now, we need to talk more about the emotion of our players and how they recover because there are many players that have been playing a long time.

"We have to go to Rayo Vallecano [this weekend], we are still Barca, we have to continue doing things as we usually do them.

"So we will talk to the president as well and we will talk about everything - the situation what happened in these days and of course we will take a decision because it is time to take a decision now."
