Barca Star On Guard Of Honour Controversy

FC Barcelona Star On Guard Of Honour Controversy

By David Kappel - Apr 30, 2018 02:07 PM @kappilinho

FC Barcelona secured their 25th title this weekend, yet, Zinedine Zidane announced that Real Madrid will not give them a guard of honour in El Clasico on Sunday. Here is what a Blaugrana star had to say on the controversial snub.

The Catalan giants beat Deportivo La Coruna 4-2 on Sunday night to go 11 points clear off second-placed Atletico Madrid, who have just three more games to play.

Barcleona and bitter rivals Real Madrid have given each a guard of honour peviously when one of the two eternal rivals had already secured the title before an El Clasico.

However, Zidane has came out and insisted his players will not fulfill the act of respect after the Blaugrana didn’t give them a guard of honour for lifting the FIFA Club World Cup before El Clasico in December.

Jordi Alba now insisted he won't hold any grudges on his Madrid-based Spain teammates because the decision on whether to give a guard of honour will be made by the club’s bosses and not the players.

"It's not a decision we take, everyone has respect for those who want to," he said, as quoted by Marca.

"The Club World Cup was a competition we didn't play in, at the (Santiago) Bernabeu, in the league, we have previously performed a guard of honour.

"If they don't want to give us a guard of honour it will be because it comes from upstairs."

Barcelona’s stars did receive a guard of honour by Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday, despite the title only being confirmed with the Catalan’s 4-2 win on the night.

Zizou is a bitter loser even his player know that. There is no love lost between Spaniard and this might open a crack or disturbilise Spanish camp before world cup. Spain should not allow this for the sake of unity among Spanish players

footbal is about winning titles but it has fundamental questions and answers to define the best players and managers eg Zizou not because he coached madrid only buy the way observe his team on peformnce basis like domesticly and international level his team lack consistance what you can call intense competition so he will always need long period to prepare for competition

Some people here started watching football in the Messi/Ronaldo era...it is Barcelona who started all this when they refused to give Madrid a guard of honour in 1999 if not 2000 so Madrid are returning the favour
