Real Madrid star Luka Modric mocked Gerard Pique following Barcelona's 2-1 defeat in Saturday's El Clasico, by claiming the Catalans are 'ready to crack'.

Goals from Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos took Madrid to the top of the LaLiga table, as Barcelona slipped to third. Pique was sidelined and missed the clash through injury clashed with Modric at full-time, when he came down to the pitch to confront referee Jesus Gil Manzano.

On his way to the official, Pique bumped into Modric, with the Real Madrid midfielder saying: "You're waiting to crack now, eh?" Pique responded sharply by saying, "Mate, four minutes..." relating to the amount of stoppage time given at the end of the game. Modric came back at Pique, asking: "How many (more minutes) do you want?".

Pique was then seeing reprimanding referee Manzano over the amount of stoppage time give to Barcelona to find an equaliser at the end of the second half. The Spanish defender was heard saying: "Let me speak, let me speak, you gave us a little extra time, and you've been off the field for a long time," before being dragged away from the referee by club official Carlos Naval.

Barca boss Ronald Koeman revealed his side's fury over the decision and claimed the decision from Manzano was not 'fair play'.

The Dutchman told the club's official website in a post-match interview: "We are really angry with the situation about the penalty, because that's not fair play if you don't give the penalty. I don't understand that."
