Isco rejects captain armband, could incur the wrath of fans

Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 13/12/2018

Real Madrid midfielder Isco rejection of the captain armband from Marcelo after the Brazilian was substituted against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabeu could land the former Malaga star in trouble.

Isco was the captain against Melilla and Dani Carvajal was in the team that played alongside the Spanish midfielder in the Copa Del Rey.

The reason as to why Isco rejected the armband is yet to be unfolded, "I tried to give Isco the armband but he told me I had to give it to Carvajal," said Marcelo.

"I don't know why,” Isco instructed Marcelo to hand the captain band to Carvajal.

Isco is supposed to be the next captain of the team that played against CSKA Moscow and the reason is simple: it's the line of succession at Madrid - Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Karim Benzema, Raphael Varane, Nacho, Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and then Isco.

With his action against CSKA Moscow Isco might incur the wrath of the board of directors, team members, coach and the fans coupled with the fact that the team played one of their worst game this season by losing 3-0 to CSKA Moscow on two occasions in the group.
