Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has played down a clash with Zinedine Zidane in 2003, when they were at each other’s throats in a Clasico meeting.
Footage of the spat emerged soon after Zidane was named Real Madrid coach on Monday, but the Barcelona coach moved quickly to brush over the spat, claiming he couldn’t recall it.
“I don’t have an opinion about him as a coach. I haven’t had the time to go over it,” Luis Enrique said.
“We don’t really know each other. I don’t really have a bad memory of anyone I’ve played against.
“Everyone defends their own team and I don’t have a good or bad memory of anything.
“I haven’t seen the images and I don’t remember any exchange with Zidane, but for sure we were defending our teams.
“I respect him as a colleague.”
Luis Enrique and Zidane will meet for the first time as managers on April 3.
