Modric, Pique have brief argument right after El Clasico

Pique and Modric argue after the 2021 El Clasico.

Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué and Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric had a brief argument right after the final whistle of Saturday’s El Clasico, which ended 2-1 for Los Blancos.

Movistar+ caught the discussion on camera as the players were leaving the pitch of the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. Pique was greeting and congratulating Real Madrid’s players while waiting for the referee and Modric wanted to have none of it.

“You’re waiting for the referee to complain, huh?” asked Modric as he passed by Pique.

The defender replied by saying that the referee only added four minutes to the game and Modric quickly responded:

“How many more do you want?,” suggesting that four minutes were enough for that second half.

Real Madrid are now one point ahead of Barcelona in the table and have equaled Atletico de Madrid’s 66 points, although Simeone’s men visit Betis on Sunday and have the chance to regain control of the table.
