Zidane Says Real Won't Give Barcelona A Guard Of Honour, Pique Responds

Zidane Says Real Won't Give Barcelona A Guard Of Honour, Pique Responds

Zinedine Zidane has said his Real Madrid side will not be giving Barcelona a guard of honour at the Nou Camp for the next El Clasico on 6 May.

Bringing up how Barca didn't extend the gesture to Real in December's clash which came just after Los Blancos had won the Club World Cup, he says his team won't do it either because the Blaugrana "broke tradition".

"We will not give a guard of honour, this is my decision," Zidane said in his presser ahead of today's derby with Atletico.

"Barcelona didn't follow the tradition when we won the Club World Cup. This is my decision.

"I don't understand the guard of honour and it won't take place, although we are far from the end of the season.

"Barcelona broke the tradition."

Real are in the unusual position of pretty much guaranteeing a title for bitter rivals Barca with a win over their city rivals at the Bernabeu.

Gerard Pique was asked to respond to Zidane's comments and cheekily uttered, "I'm not going to be able to sleep at night," - cracking a wry smile before heading off.
