Nantes are just three points out of the drop zone after their poor start t the season, and rumours are already circulating that reserves boss Loic Amisse is set to replace Marcos at the helm.
The Canaries coach held a meeting with his players to discuss their problems but that did not prove too successful.
Goalkeeper and skipper Landreau admitted that they had not been doing so well, but these comments did not go down well with chairman Jean-Luc Gripond.
The club supreme threatened to take the captain's armband away from Landreau as a result, but the skipper insists he is focused on the team.
"My situation upsets me," said Landreau. "But I will remain professional as people have asked me to be.
"Today I have two choices, either I only think about me, or I think about the club.
"What does the armband bring to me? If I didn't have it, people would only talk about my performances.
"Saying we are not playing well today, is not going against the club as everybody here knows this.
"I have always acted for the club. I never said anything in the press about Marcos, and I will never do, I respect him.
"The chairman is talking about the armband but I don't have to comment. One thing is absolutely certain - it is not my priority.
"But I would like people to tell me in the face. The major thing is the club and the group."
The club officials are set to meet with the keeper to ease the situation as they do not want to have the captain and one of their best players disgruntled at this difficult time for them.
