Real Madrid legend Marcelo will bid final goodbye on Monday

Marcelo is Real Madrid’s most decorated player with 25 titles under his name.

Real Madrid concluded the year on a euphoric note, claiming the league and the Champions League at the last weekend of May. Their captain, on the other hand, must have had a sour moment. Marcelo was well aware that this might have been his penultimate play for the team, and also that his closing chapter might be to raise the Champions League cup, putting an end to a phenomenal run of triumph for the Brazilian.

Real Madrid has revealed that a media briefing will be hosted at Valdebebas on Monday at 4:30 p.m. IST to say adieu to club stalwart Marcelo, who will exit the team this year after 16 years in the Spanish city, wherein he earned the club‘s highest decorated player in history this campaign.


Based on the club’s formal release, club president Florentino Perez would certainly be in attendance. Marcelo’s exit signals the conclusion of a chapter for Real Madrid, given he became a pivotal player for the club over the last decade as well as a passionate personality among the fanbase. Los Blancos will have a great difficulty replacing him as captain since he fully knew what it entailed to be a Real Madrid player.

Throughout his time at Real Madrid, the Brazilian great claimed 25 titles, making him, together with fellow club legend, Roberto Carlos, simply the finest left-back in existence. After Real Madrid clinched LaLiga the previous month, the left-back surpassed great winger Paco Gento’s 23 titles to claim the club’s greatest decorated player.  Six La Liga titles, Five Spanish Supercopa, 2 Copas del Reys, three European Super Cups and the 5 best Champions Leagues have been added to his trophy chest.
