"The decision to take the captain's armband off Icardi was hard and painful because we know all about his value", Spalletti said at a news conference.

Having scored three times in his last ten appearances for the club, his manager Luciano Spaletti suggested at the weekend that his contract talks are having an impact on his performances.

"The things going on around Icardi have disturbed us, both him and the team which he used to captain".
