It happened that the skipper was substituted in the late hours of the match but instead of him to run off the pitch as his team needed a win in the game but he was rather seen walking off the pitch which got the angry fans infuriated and they started booing the captain. The Swiss lost his cool and made some rude gestures to the fans and pulled his Jersey and walked down the tunnel. This did not go down well with the manager as he believed the skipper is supposed to lead by example and this has prompted the stripping of the armband from the Swiss.
