There are rules in football, but stepping on a club's logo is not one of them, which means it's not illegal. But why do some players prefer not to step on them?
For instance, a day before Manchester City played Atletico Madrid at Etihad Stadium for the Champions League Quarter final match on April 5, Three Atleti players were captured walking around city's crest.
Luiz Suarez, Rodrigo de Paul and Angel Correa as they were heading towards the field through the stadium tunnel, they were about to step on it, but Luiz noticed and prevented his two teammates from walking over it.
Another instance is when Vinicius Junior jumped over Real Madrid's logo During a match against Valencia in January this year because according to him the badge is like a treasure.
This has become a modern-day football tradition for some players, and they do it because it is a sign of respect, a courteous gesture and because the logo is a treasure, while to others it is just a badge.
