Madrid (AP) — Atletico Madrid has stated that it will not honor league champion Real Madrid before the derby at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Sunday.
Honorary guards are a football practice in some countries, and when an opponent enters the field before kickoff, a team of players line up to praise the opponent to celebrate their recently won title.
Real Madrid won the Spanish League title last weekend. Atlético coach Diego Simeone said, “I admire Madrid for being the champion, but I have more respect for the fans.”
