Ex-Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos shared an elegant message on Instagram for his Real Madrid teammate and a player whom he considers a dear brother, Marcelo. It was announced that the Brazilian defender Marcelo will be leaving the club after playing 16 long seasons for the Los Blancos. The farewell for Marcelo was conducted by the club on Monday as he has played a major part in the club’s history. The Brazilian star had joined Real Madrid back in 2007.
After defeating Liverpool in the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League final, Marcelo becomes the player who has the most trophies for Real Madrid by having 25 trophies to his name and thus eventually becoming a club legend. In his Real Madrid career, the 34-year-old has won the UEFA Champions League 5 times.
Sergio Ramos had left the Los Blancos for PSG back in 2021 due to miscommunication between the club and the player because of the Covid-19 pandemic situation. Madrid had made an offer which came with a wage cut and a one-year extension. Ramos claimed that the salary was not the issue but he wanted a two-year extension eventually when he opted for the fixed contract deal, he was told that the offer had expired thus making him leave Madrid.
Ramos and Marcelo together have played a total of 15 seasons at the club. This decorated duo has played for Real Madrid from 2007 till 2021. The Spanish centre-back and the Brazilian star have won a total of 22 trophies together at Real Madrid making them the most versatile duo in the club’s history.
