The goalkeeper of Barcelona FC, Victor Valdes, has said that he refused to wear the captain’s armband in the 58th minute of the match against Athletic Bilbao because that armband couldn’t fit in his arms. His biceps were too large for that.

In the match against Bilbao, neither Carles Puyol nor Andres Iniesta was playing. So, in their absence, Xavi Hernandez was captaining the side. But, in the 58th minute, he was substituted by Lionel Messi. So, he had to give that armband to someone else.
