Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has rebuffed calls that his players should offer La Liga winners Real Madrid a guard of honour when the two teams meet in the Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday night in Spain.
As a token of respect, trophy winners in Spain’s top division have traditionally been cheered onto the pitch by their next opponents.
Guardiola, on the other hand, was asked by the Spanish press if Manchester City should applaud Real Madrid’s players onto the pitch ahead of Wednesday’s match, but the Spaniard looked perplexed by the concept.
“No, I have no view about that.” “That is a UEFA question,” Guardiola answered.
“I understand that you ask me something about the league, about Real Madrid becoming champions, but as spokesman for this club, which is what I am, we congratulate them, but this is the Champions League.”
Meanwhile, the winner of tonight’s clash between Real Madrid and Man City will meet Liverpool in the Champions League final later this month.
