Zinedine Zidane warns Real Madrid about fearsome reaction from Juventus

Zinedine Zidane warns Real Madrid about fearsome reaction from Juventus

Zinedine Zidane denied Real Madrid are over-reliant on Cristiano Ronaldo after they were held to a 1-1 derby draw against Atletico Madrid. In Spain it has become traditional for opponents to form a guard of honour for the champions.

We do have recognition towards Madrid, for what they have achieved this year.

Zinedine Zidane says he doesn't know if Gareth Bale will remain with Real Madrid next season.

Zidane was referencing Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde's refused to give Real Madrid a guard of honour after they had won World Club Championship when the two sides met last December.

Tradition has dictated that La Liga's fiercest rivals will acknowledge the achievements of one another once top honours are secured.

Real Madrid will play Barca on May 7 and for Pique, Zidane's remark was not important to lose sleep over.

However, reports of Liverpool manager replacing Zidane at the end of this season will have to wait as Spanish daily, Marca, claims Zidane is staying put.

"We'll try our best, we've gone through the whole season to get to this point".

"We are not going to make the guard of honour for Barcelona", he added.

"I'm happy with the match and how we performed because we clearly deserved more".

"He'll be here next season, just like the rest of them".

"He's been training and he's not going to let his motivation levels drop off".

That does seem a fair point, but it's unlikely Barca will mind too much as they'll probably still be buzzing from the title capture if that does turn out to be the case.

Defender Nacho will miss out for Real as he has not recovered from a muscle problem suffered against Los Palmas.
