I’ve played my last game with Real Madrid – Marcelo

Real Madrid’s Brazilian defender Marcelo has confirmed he is leaving the club after lifting the 14th Champions League title over Liverpool at the Stade de France.

The Brazilian full-back leaves the Casa Blanca as the player with the most titles in its history (25).

He said he leaves “with great joy and grateful to the fans” and the magical nights” lived at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“It’s a very nice moment. When you are first captain you dream of lifting the cup and I have become the only Brazilian to lift a Champions League as captain of Real Madrid,” he said after stopping the honor of lifting “la orejona” even without having participated on the field.

The 34- year-old of age will be looking to continue his career elsewhere.

Despite being a historic member of the team, Marcelo retained his humility, explaining that he feels like just another member of the team:

“The emotion is brutal, it was my last game with Real Madrid. But I am very happy. It’s not a day of sadness, I’m leaving with a lot of joy, grateful to the fans and the magical nights I’ve experienced at the Bernabeu.”

 

Marcelo will officially say goodbye to the Merengue fans on Sunday at the team’s official celebration in Madrid, which will conclude at the Fuente de la Cibeles, the traditional venue for Merengues titles.
