​Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has played down talks of a long-running feud between himself and new Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, after old footage resurfaced this week of a fight between the pair in a match in 2003. 


At the time, Enrique took objection to what he saw as a foul by Zidane, confronting the Frenchman and ending up grabbing his throat while the Madrid man held his counterpart by the face. 


Enrique, though, has claimed that he has no memory of the undignified incident, ​saying"I don't have an opinion about him as a coach. I haven't had the time to go over it. 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."


Meanwhile, Enrique confirmed that summer signings Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal could finally make their Barcelona debuts against Espanyol now that the club's transfer ban has ended, telling ​Spanish press"Both of them will get the chance to wear the Barcelona shirt and play a part in the match. We have GPS data from their training sessions that shows that they are perfectly capable of playing the full 90 minutes


"Arda can play in the middle or out wide, and I dare say Aleix Vidal could play in any of three positions, either at full-back, centre-back or even out on the wing. He can play in any of these positions depending on what we need to get from certain matches. Both players have outstanding skills."
