Against Elche, Luka Modric captained Real Madrid for his first time ever after Marcelo was taken off. Following the game, the 36-year-old made a special post about it on Instagram.
“Proud to be captain for the 1st time. Good win from the team. Hala Madrid,” Modric wrote.
Former Blanco captain Sergio Ramos responded with a special message.
“This indeed is a captain! Great, my brother,” Ramos responded.
Following Sergio’s summer departure, Marcelo became Real Madrid’s captain, while Karim Benzema acts as the vice-captain.
