Marcelo will leave Real Madrid after 15 years and had an emotional parting at the press conference. "If I ever play against Real Madrid, it will not be a problem, because I am a professional and Real Madrid taught me how to be," Marcelo said.
"Thanks to my teammates, coaches. But first of all, I want to thank the physiotherapists, the security, the staff, the people behind the scenes and doing the 'dirty' work. I want to emphasize their work, because I was dedicated only to the game and everything was waiting for me.
I also want to thank my wife, because she has been with me since I started playing football. I became what I am today because of Clarice. " As a boy, he dreamed of playing in the Champions League, and he managed much more.
"When I left Brazil, I had in mind to play in the Champions League. And today I am leaving here as the player with the most titles in the history of the biggest club in the world. "
Marcelo on his future and CL
Marcelo wanted to stay, but the coaches had other plans.
"I talked to the coaches and told them I wanted to play more. It is up to them to decide. I can talk to them, but they are the ones who decide. I felt I could play more, but everyone has their own philosophy and they decide.
" Although he did not play in the CL final, Marcelo had a great influence on the players. "I may have been selfish when we talked, but I thought I could help in other ways. I didn't play in the Champions League final this year, but I felt more important than in the four finals when I did.
There are ways to make an impact without touching the lottery. " His future is uncertain. "I will continue to play. "When there is any news about the new club, I will post it on Instagram," concluded Marcelo.
