Zidane Faults Barcelona For Breaking ‘Guard Of Honour’ Tradition

Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that there will be no guard of honour for Barcelona from Real Madrid if they win LaLiga before El Clasico.

In fact, the Real coach has laid the blame for that at the door of the Blaugrana, who he accused of breaking the tradition.

“If a guard of honour after winning a trophy is a tradition then Barcelona broke it so we won’t do it at the Camp Nou and that’s my decision,” he said.

He was referring to the Clasico of December 23, 2017 when the Blaugrana failed to perform one for Real at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu after their victory in the Club World Cup.

“At this club, we usually perform a guard of honour when we participate in the tournament that the team wins,” explained Guillermo Amor.

Barcelona went on to win that derby 3-0.
