Real Madrid star Isco rejected the captain armband during Wednesday’s 3-0 defeat by CSKA Moscow at the Santiago Bernabeu.
According to a UK Sun report, the encounter saw the Los Blancos suffer the worst defeat in the Champions League before home fans, but have already sealed a spot in the knockout rounds going into the game.
However, in the course of the game, captain on the night Marcelo was replaced in the second stanza, but as he was making his way to hand Isco, the playmaker stylishly refused collecting it.

But Dani Carvajal stepped in to save the day, a situation Marcelo later described as puzzling.
“I tried to give the armband to Isco. But he told me that I had to give it to Carvajal. I don’t know what the reason for that was,” the Selecao star said.

The Spaniard Isco has not found life at the Los Blancos easy nuts to crack since Julen Lopetegui was sacked in October.
And reports are repeatedly linking the La Roja star with a move away from the Los Blancos in January.
Interestingly, he was not at his best during the game and was also involved in a spat with the fans after seeing his shot was blocked by a CSKA defender.
And judging by his reaction to being given the armband, it seems clear Isco didn’t want any part in Real’s humbling downfall.
