La Liga – Atlético will not make a corridor to Real Madrid



La Liga – The controversy continues: from the board of Atlético Madrid they deny the pasillo to Real Madrid. The Whites came out champions of the tournament and must visit the Wanda Metropolitano. But the colchoneros will not make the classic corridor and ignited the flame of controversy.

In Spain there is a tradition. When a team wins a league title, the opponents of the following matches wait for them when they come out onto the pitch and applaud them in line. Real Madrid has already won the local competition. And next Sunday they have the derby against Atlético Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano. But the local club has already communicated that they will not do this tribute.

In a statement, Atletico Madrid expressed that they do not agree with what was formed around this request. And they said:

“Some want to turn what was born as a gesture of recognition to the champion into a public toll to be paid by their rivals, impregnated also with aroma of humiliation.”

Among their arguments, the directors of Atlético Madrid commented that an attempt was made to create tension based on the tribute. And that an unnecessary controversy is being generated.

On the other hand, the communiqué argued:

“Under no circumstances will Atlético de Madrid collaborate in this attempt of mockery in which the true values of sport are completely forgotten and tension and confrontation are encouraged. Atleti is the last League champion. Does anyone remember any controversy about whether they should receive a pasillo from their first rival after winning the title? No, because there was no debate. In the first game of this season, Celta de Vigo decided not to make a pasillo and it was a correct decision, because they are gestures that should be made to be applauded by the public and therefore it makes perfect sense that they are made in front of the champion’s fans. The objective should not be to create tension and to create a tense atmosphere. We received the pasillo in the first game we played as locals, by Elche. Naturally, with gratitude and, obviously, without any demands”.

Even from Atlético Madrid they explain that the pasillo should be made when playing in the champion’s field. And that even they have done it to them as locals at the Wanda Metropolitano.

On the other hand, they emphasized again that the media are trying to generate controversy because the rival is Real Madrid. In what the statement continues:

“We have starred in several similar situations in recent years after winning different titles, including two Ligas, and on some occasions there was some kind of tribute from the rival team towards our champion team and on others not. But there has never been an expectation or a controversy as exaggerated and artificial as the one we have been experiencing in recent weeks.”

To close, from Atlético Madrid they threw a little stick towards the sidewalk in front of them. And they said:

“It is as important to know how to lose as it is to know how to win. From Atleti we do not intend to impose anything on others. It is clear that we have another way of understanding life”.

The rivalry between Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid is enormous. In recent years, it has been boosted by the two Champions League finals that Los Blancos won against Diego Simeone’s team.

In every derby the fans remind them of those matches against Atlético Madrid. And even when Sergio Agüero was part of the Colchonero he had to clarify that “not even drunk” he would play for Real Madrid.
