Marcelo Viera has been Real Madrid’s most decorated player to date. No other player has ever won 25 titles with Real Madrid. Marcelo has won literally everything at the Santiago Bernabeu and a farewell was planned as soon as he confirmed his departure.
Real Madrid recently won their 14th Champions League title due to Vinicius Junior’s brilliant back-post goal. Marcelo was a key player in the starting XI again.
It surprises everyone the fact that the Brazilian full-back has played almost every game for Madrid since he signed for them. He has played up to 845 games for the club and has also racked up 108 assists.
Marcelo wanted to leave in style by helping his beloved cup in raising the most precious trophy in the history of football. He did it, Real Madrid did it and he left everyone in tears.
The Santiago Bernabeu erupted in joy as he ran towards the stands and raised the trophy in front of them. Ancelotti had decided to give him the captaincy armband and he proved its worth.
How clinical have been Madrid’s defenders, first Sergio Ramos who was an excellent captain, and now it’s Marcelo. Florentino Perez praised the Brazilian and decided to set up a farewell ceremony to honor the legendary player.
Marcelo’s Speech During His Farewell Ceremony Left Carlo Ancelotti And Raul In Tears
Marcelo talked about his emotional 15 years with Real Madrid and thanked everyone for their immense support towards him. But he held special praise for the legendary Real Madrid striker, Raul.
Raul was present to listen to Marcelo’s heartwarming words as he has been a key figure in Marcelo’s career.
As reported by the Metro, Marcelo thanked Raul by saying: “Raul, I want to thank you for the detail you have had with me. When my son Enzo was born, you gave a lot of gifts to me baby, and to me as well and you even offered your advice. You and your family have always been loving to me. I will never forget that. You have set an example and I decided to follow it. I want to thank you in person as I have never said it before.”
Even Carlo Ancelloti was left in tears as Marcelo spoke for the final time in front of his true Real Madrid supporters.
