Guardiola in hospital

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is undergoing treatment in hospital after tests revealed a herniated disc in his back.

Guardiola was admitted to a hospital overnight with acute back pain after the Spanish leaders' 1-0 win at Valencia on Wednesday.

The 40-year-old remained seated on the bench for most of the game in obvious discomfort from a problem that has nagged him for weeks. It now looks unlikely that he will be on the sideline for tomorrow's home league match against Zaragoza.
