Ramon Morales has been with Chivas de Guadalajara for more than 10 years and captain since 2007. Now, the midfielder will leave his role as captain for personal reasons. Assuming the armband will be Omar Bravo during his second stint with Chivas.

Morales had taken over the captain role in 2007, after Oswaldo Sanchez departed for Santos Laguna. Since then, "Ramoncito" has given his service as captain.

Although Morales did not give specific reasons for leaving the position, the free-kick maestro left it clear that it was not because of any internal problems.

"There are no problems with the technical team, with any of my teammates, or with Jorge Vergara," said Morales at a press conference. "On the contrary, I thank them for the support that they have always shown me. It's important to mention that the face that I won't be captain doesn't take any responsibility that I have with the team."

Soon after, manager Francisco Ramirez named Bravo the new captain of the team. Bravo left Chivas to join Deportivo La Coruña, but after a year of little activity, returned to El Rebaño.

The striker played a full game once again in the Jornada 7 against Puebla where he wore the captain armband jumping over Hector Reynoso, who had shared in the captain's duties.
