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.

The left-back Brazilian posted a photo of himself with Neymar on his Instagram account saying "Congratulations and many happy returns. Lots of health, love and success little bro I love you!!"

However, Marcelo was sent some hatred coming from his own fans asking why he didn’t wish birthday to Ronaldo, which made him triggered to replying "Shut the f**k up idiots."


Later, the Real Madrid player did eventually post a picture, wishing his teammate Ronaldo.
