Atletico Madrid has not opted to give a guard of honor to the LaLiga Title holders Real Madrid. The team considered this move because they believe that it is humiliating and can stoke fights between the fans of the two teams.
Some people want to turn what began as a gesture of recognition for the champions into a public toll that their rivals must pay, imbued with the scent of humiliation. Atletico Madrid will under no circumstances collaborate in this attempt at ridicule in which the true values of sport are completely forgotten and tension and confrontation between fans are incited.
