Zidane Explains Why Real Won't Give Barca Guard Of Honour

By SL International - May 06, 2018 01:32 PM

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has explained why they won't give LaLiga champions FC Barcelona a guard of honour at El Clasico.

The Catalan giants were crowned champions for the 25th time last weekend, and they already received a guard of honour before the encounter against Deportivo la Coruna.

However, Zidane says they will not do the same on Sunday evening as Barca did not give them a guard of honour when they won the Club World Cup earlier this season.

"I am not the one who decides if there is a pasillo," Zidane said, according to Sky Sports News.
 
"We must explain the situation - after the Club World Cup I understand it was not important for them to do it.
 
"Some say it is as they were not in the competition, but that is not true. You have to win the Champions League to get to the Club World Cup, and we are all in that.
 
"So they did not do it. We respect what Barca have done, to win La Liga is the most difficult, I have always said that. I congratulate them.
 
"If they had done the pasillo... I am not breaking any tradition, but neither will I do something that they did not do."

Zidane wins the champions league, champions league is more important than the league. Ask pep guardiola of bayern munich or emry of psg if you think im lying.

Zidane must be high on something. Club world cup and champions league are 2 deferent competitions. He must admit that he is jealous qa. Now he is confusing people with lies. Catalunya rules. Keep your guard of honour we will keep the tittle

They are setting a bad precedence. They should do it because its tradition to do that to a team that wins the league. Yes it's not in the rules but it's sportsmanship. Let them do it for the champions.

Say whatever you want, the man is being honest Zidane. Why do you give something to someone who doesn't like it. Their unwillingness to honour Madrid is clear indication that they don't like guard of honour
