Guardiola tight-lipped over London strike duo

Josep Guardiola has refused to be drawn on speculation linking Barcelona with Barclays Premier League stars Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Adebayor.

Reports claim the Nou Camp boss is interested in both Chelsea's Drogba and Arsenal striker Adebayor in a bid to strengthen his side further ahead of his first campaign in the hotseat.

But Guardiola was remaining tight-lipped after watching Barca cruise to a 6-0 friendly win over Hibernian at Murrayfield in his first game in charge last night.

'I'm not here to speak about them,' he said.

'I have many excellent players and I am working with them. All good players are interesting and those players are interesting but there are many, many good players, in England, Germany, everywhere.'

Asked whether he was preparing to make a bid, Guardiola added: 'I don't know. The sporting director can talk about that better than me.'

Eidur Gudjohnsen helped himself to a double and Lionel Messi, Pedro, Bojan and Yaya Toure all claimed a goal apiece in a game where Messi stole the show in the 45 minutes he was on the park.

Guardiola is now seeking a quick resolution over the Argentinian's participation in the Olympic Games in Beijing this summer - a move Barcelona are opposed to.

He said: '(FIFA president Sepp) Blatter has to make a decision because we have been waiting a long time for the decision.

'If he has to go according to the law, he goes. If he is to stay according to the law, he stays.

'But a decision had to be made as quickly as possible.'

Meanwhile, Mixu Paatelainen has assured concerned fans that Hibs will be on top form by the time they face Kilmarnock in their Clydesdale Bank Premier League opener next month.

And he insists his side's confidence has not been shattered by the thrashing at the hands of Barcelona.

He said: 'We will be fine when the Kilmarnock game comes around. We faced a very high quality side today - the best team in the world.

'It was a disappointment for myself and the players but we realise who we were playing against.'

Hibs already suffered disappointment earlier this month when they were sent crashing out of the Intertoto Cup by Swedish side Elfsborg, who claimed four goals without reply over the two legs.

But Paatelainen claimed to have no concerns about his side's fragile confidence following this latest setback.

He said: 'No, not at all. We knew we were facing one of the best teams in the world and we got a real lesson.

'The players won't like watching the video but that's the way forward.'
