Sergio Ramos has given his verdict on offering Barcelona a guard of honour after Zinedine Zidane said he has already decided it won’t happen when Los Blancos visit the Camp Nou.

There’s a distinct chance that Barcelona could have sealed the title by the time the Clasico comes around, but Zidane has already decided not to offer a guard of honour.

Ramos reckons he has to do what his manager tells him but that does not mean his team do not respect Barcelona.

“Guard of honour? I’ve always said we have to respect whatever the boss says. They didn’t give us a guard of honour either.

“There must be respect and the issue of a guard of honour shouldn’t be magnified. I don’t think Barcelona care.

“If the boss said it, that’s that. If we don’t do a guard of honour, it doesn’t mean we don’t respect them.”
