Nacho Fernandez was Real Madrid’s captain during their International Champions Cup match against Manchester United and he later shared a photo on social media in which the armband was visible.
Luka Modric responded to his teammate and joked about the fact he’d chosen a photo in which the armband was visible for his pre-season message, which spoke of hard work.
“Bragging with the armband, great capi!” the Croatian midfielder wrote, along with several emojis.
Nacho, also seeing the funny side, replied.
“Lots of bragging,” he wrote.
Alvaro Morata also chimed in, labelling his former teammate “Il Capitano”.
