Pique Responds To Zidane's Guard Of Honour Refusal

Gerard Pique Responds To Zinedine Zidane's Guard Of Honour Refusal

By Kurt Buckerfield - Apr 09, 2018 10:29 AM @KurtLaduma

FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has commented on Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane's refusal to let his men give their rivals a guard of honour in the upcoming El Clasico.

Zidane: Real Madrid Will Not Give Barca Guard Of Honour

The Los Blancos boss recently insisted that his players will not give the Catalan club a guard of honour in El Clasico next month.

The two rivals will go head to head at the Camp Nou on 6 May, when Ernesto Valverde's side will have likely wrapped up the LaLiga title already.

Asked about Zidane's comments recently, Pique came up with a rather sarcastic response.

"I'm not going to sleep tonight," he told Movistar Partidazo.

There was controversy around the same topic in December, when Cristiano Ronaldo called for the Blaugrana to give Real a guard of honour in the first Clasico of the season after the Madrid side won the FIFA Club World Cup.

The Catalan club refused, however, as they felt it was unnecessary because they did not play in the competition.

Do you think that if Barca have won LaLiga by then, Real should give them a guard of honour? Let us know in the comments section below.

People fail to look at these things with maturity in reasoning. The route to CWC is a Gold medal of Champions league. Barca failed along the way to clinch champions league. Madrid went ALL THE WAY.

@Matayitayi AKA Mantanyula how the heck would you expect your weak Barca to play Club World Cup when failing to win UCL? Only the BOSSES meet at the CWC baba.

Guard of honour or not, Catalans are the champions. How do you give one guard of honour where you never participated? Bitter losers

What goes around comes around, you refused to give them guard of honour as Champion league (the greatest jug of all), and you expect them to honour your plastic cup, sit down. You made this bench yourself, so sit on it. You grumble forcing others to sit on it, now that your neighbours are giving your medicine you're quick to blame. Do to others what you want them to do for you. That's a good back-to-the-sender.

It's always up to the team if they don't see a need then it's okay... Just concerned if Barca would give Madrid a guard of honour if they meet in UEFA Final since they defended the title twice

From Real Madrid either Ramos or Ronaldo will respond, this three are spokespersons of their respective clubs and they do it so well.
