The 34-year-old Brazilian left-back Marcelo has left the Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid as a legend. During his more than 15 years of continuous service for Los Blancos, the Brazilian helped the team move forward with many new histories.

Marcelo is known as one of the best left-backs in the world for a long time. He joined Real Madrid in January 2006 from the Brazilian club Fluminense. Gradually, he became one of the favourite footballers of the club.

The Brazilian defender made his debut for Los Blancos on 7th January 2007 when he came on the field as a substitute against the hosts Deportivo La Coruna in a La Liga game. His first match at Santiago Bernabeu, the home venue of the Whites, was on 17th February 2007 against Real Betis in the Spanish first division game, where he once again played as a substitute.


Marcelo’s first start for Real Madrid was on 14th April 2007, when Racing hosted them in a La Liga match.

On 18th September 2007, the Brazilian left-back experienced his first start at Santiago Bernabeu. It was a UEFA Champions League Group Stage game against Werder Bremen. Slowly, the top-class teamman evolved as a history creator for the Whites.

The top-class left-back managed to put his name in the UEFA Champions League Squad of the Season four times (2010/11, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18). He was a very dependable player for this Spanish club who could also serve responsibly as a winger during his best periods.
