Barcelona star makes fun of Zidane as La Liga title nears

 

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has trolled ZinedineZidane after the Real Madrid coach said they would not give their Catalan rivals a guard of honour when both sides meet in the Clasico next month.

Pique reacted to Zidane’s stance by claiming the development will cause him to lose sleep.

Zidane has said Real Madrid will not give the Catalans the customary show of recognition ahead of the La Liga meeting at Camp Nou in May, assuming Barca have won the title by then.

The Frenchman this week accused Barca of breaking tradition when they refused to hold a guard of honour following Madrid’s Club World Cup win in December.

But Pique, speaking after his side’s 3-1 win over Leganes on Saturday, did not appear unduly affronted by Zidane’s decision.

“I’m not going to sleep tonight,” he replied with a smile when asked about the issue by MovistarPartidazo .

Barca’s win, which came courtesy of a hat-trick from Lionel Messi, saw Ernesto Valverde’s side equal the La Liga record of 38 consecutive matches without defeat.
