Many Real Madrid fans were extremely unhappy when they saw their favourite defender Marcelo wishing Barcelona player Neymar happy birthday, but not to his own teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
Both attackers share the same birthday. However, when Marcelo sent a message to his Brazil teammate instead of his Madrid partner, fans did not appreciate his move.
