Will Marcelo retire or become a coach? Everything the Brazilian and Real Madrid legend said as he say goodbye to the club this afternoon.
The Brazilian left-back will leave the club as a free agent this summer and he said goodbye this afternoon.
We’ll provide you everything he said today as he was in tears.
Marcelo will become a coach in the future?
“Becoming a coach in the future? No, I don’t like it. I have other qualities but training, I don’t think so.”
“Zidane has been like a brother for me, I enjoyed a lot with him. My relationship with him and his sons is beautiful, very close. We’re all friends ”
“My future club? When I will know something I will be the first to say it. Maybe on my Instagram (laughs).”
Marcelo: “I will never forget when the fans started singing ‘Happy birthday’ to me at the stadium.”
“I will always support Real Madrid wherever I’ll be.”
“The best thing has been seeing my friends and the youngsters win La Liga and the Champions League.”
“I surely wanted to play more but it’s the manager who decides what I can do. But I have understood every player is important.”
“I won 5 Champions League, unbelievable. I played 4 finals but I felt more important this season. I had good talks with Rodrygo, Militao, Valverde on the bench. The best thing was talking to them, hugging them during the final.”
“When Real Madrid knocked at my door I had no doubts. Here, you live special moments. I always say that to the youngsters, to enjoy because there’s nothing better than Real Madrid.”
“I have never wanted to be Roberto Carlos’ replacement. I wanted to be me, Marcelo. But for me, Roberto is the best left-back in the history ”
“I won’t stop talking to the people of the club, I won’t stop visiting Valdebebas. I don’t feel like I’m leaving.”
Will Marcelo retire?
“I won’t retire, I think I can still play. Facing Real Madrid? It won’t be a problem. I’m a Madridista but I’m also a big professional.”
“Watching the youngsters play has been priceless. I want them to remember me as the person I am, not because of a nutmeg I did or because I won a Champions League.”
“Even if I played less this season I felt very important for the team. This season I realized it’s not so important to play, I felt important anyway [on the bench].”
“Wearing Real Madrid’s shirt is beautiful. I did what I had to and I’m very happy. My family is proud of me.”
