The European Football Federation (UEFA) has decided to remove the names of two Real Madrid players from the list of winners of the 2021/22 Champions League title.

Real Madrid have won the championship Champions League 2021/22 after beating Liverpool 1-0 in the final at the Stade De France. Besides the prestigious elephant ear trophy, the “Los Blancos” players and coaching staff were also awarded medals by UEFA, but not everyone was recognized as a champion.
Isco stripped of Champions League title 2021/22
Accordingly, UEFA has decided not to recognize Isco and Lunin as Champions League champions 2021/22. The reason is because the leading body of European football thinks that players who have not played a minute in the Champions League this whole season will not be counted in the list.
According to statistics, Isco and Lunin were not used a minute by coach Carlo Ancelotti in the Champions League 2021/22. This duo are the only two players of the first team Real Madrid did not play in Europe’s most prestigious club-level playground last season. Isco has become redundant at “Los Blancos” in recent seasons, while Lunin simply cannot compete with an all-too-stellar Thibaut Courtois in the woodwork.
That also means Isco is excluded from the list of players who have won the Champions League five times, including Benzema, Bale, Kroos, Modric, Marcelo, Nacho, Carvajal, Casemiro and Cristiano Ronaldo, a star also played for Real Madrid.

Isco has also confirmed that he will leave Real Madrid after his contract expires. The Spanish midfielder became the second player to announce his departure from the Bernabeu immediately after winning the Champions League, after Marcelo.
On his personal Instagram page, Isco wrote a farewell letter: “This day in the past, when I was happy in Malaga, Real Madrid came and knocked on my heart’s door. You know, once Real Madrid has made an offer, you can’t refuse, except in a few confusing cases.
I would like to thank my teammates, the coaching staff to the entire Real Madrid staff who took care of us from the shoes, the shirt to the rigorous training plans. I lack nothing, but sometimes I have a surplus of love from everyone. Again, thank you all! Goodbye, Hala Madrid!”
Isco joined Real Madrid from Malaga in the summer of 2013 for 30 million euros and has been with the Bernabeu team for the past 9 years. In total, the Spaniard played 353 matches, scoring 53 goals for “Los Blancos”.
