Barca Find Surprise Solution For Guard Of Honour Snub

FC Barcelona Find Surprise Solution For Real Madrid's Guard Of Honour Snub

By David Kappel - May 07, 2018 11:40 AM @kappilinho

Real Madrid did not give bitter rivals FC Barcelona a guard of honour despite the Catalan giants having already been confirmed as league champions, but the Blaugrana found a surprise solution for their own guard of honour.

Zinedine Zidane announced a while ago that his men were not going to give the LaLiga champions a guard of honour because Barcelona did not give Real one after they won the FIFA Club World Cup.

This was a hot topic around Sunday's El Clasico, but after the 2-2 draw, Barca found their own solution to the problem.

After the match, the Catalan giants celebrated their 25th LaLiga title with the club's fans, and Gerard Pique picked up the microphone to tell the Camp Nou that the club's staff would give the players their own guard of honour.

"As we are a family, and they (Real) didn't want to give us a guard of honour, I've asked our staff to make one," he said, as quoted by Marca.

"With that we are leaving."

FC Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde also explained how the guard of honour was all Pique's idea.

"It was totally improvised. Pique is a box of surprises," the Spanish tactician told Marca.

"They told me that there was to be a guard of honour and they did it. In the end, those who earned it are the players, those who represent us."

@DopeZN just like a Chicken you beat and it comes back again bcz it doesn't have a good memory so are Barcows. You are waisting your time reminding them. They suffer from hatred. They talk things about King CR7 while their goat influence and scares referees. Plus his brother killed a person maybe he even promise to call his brother

How can Madrid give a guard of honour to players that behave like Tarzan? Can you still remember what Wits players did to Chiefs when Chiefs gave them a guard of honour? Gaxa was one of the players laughing at his former team, what do you call that as a professional footballer?

How can you expect bad losers to give you guard of honour trying to compare La Liga with that mediocre called club world cup.
