Being booed by the fans was not the only news Isco found himself in the middle of, during Real Madrid’s 3-0 shock defeat against CSKA Moscow.

The midfielder – who is Madrid’s third captain – was supposed to don the captain’s armband when Marcelo was taken off. But the Spaniard handed the armband to fourth captain Dani Carvajal, which gave rise to quite a few questions.

However, Carvajal cleared the air and mentioned that the former Malaga man was merely honouring a promise.

“I feel very proud and honoured to have worn the armband in a competitive match,” Carvajal told Real Madrid TV.

“I’d like to thank Isco, because by rights he should have had it, as he signed for the club a few days before me.

“He wore it against Melilla, and he said to me then that next time, if the circumstance came about again, he would let me have it. I’m grateful to him for that, because it was a really nice gesture.”

Real Madrid’s woeful night at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday was not limited to the scoreline alone.

Gareth Bale – who came on as a second half substitute in their 3-0 defeat to CSKA Moscow – picked up an ankle injury.

Head coach Santiago Solari maintained that the injury was not due to lack of adequate rest. The severity of the injury will be evaluated soon.

“It is not a question of rest,” said the Argentine. “It is his ankle.

“We will look at the evaluation and we will chat with him.”

Los Blancos next host Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, before travelling to the UAE for the Club World Cup.
