"We're going to do what they tell us. Each one of us, FC Barcelona and us, we are going to have the position. If we have to play on 26, we will play on 26, and if it has to change the date, the important thing for us is to be prepared when we play this game. The important thing is that everyone is proud of us when we play this game."

3. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) REAL MADRID MANAGER, ZINEDINE ZIDANE, SAYING:
"We'll play when they tell us the date, and then, I think like everyone else, I don't like violence. Nobody likes it. There are images that are hard but I'm not going to go into that. If you ask me that about violence, nobody likes violence."
STORY: Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said on Friday (October 18) he was unconcerned that El Clasico had been postponed and that he didn't like the violence in Catalonia.
In a news conference previewing their clash against RCD Mallorca, Zidane told reporters he was happy to play at any time after the match was postponed until December 18 over security concerns amid violent political demonstrations in Catalonia.
Following protests over the jailing of nine Catalan separatist leaders, the league's organising body made an official request to the RFEF this week for the game to be rearranged.
