UCL fallout: Marcelo gives Real Madrid quit notice

Real Madrid captain, Marcelo has confirmed he’s leaving after seeing the club win the Champions League on Saturday.

The Brazilian full-back leaves the Casa Blanca as the player with the most titles in its history (25), “with great joy and grateful to the fans” and the “magical nights lived at the Santiago Bernabeu”, he said at the end of the match.

“It’s a very nice moment. When you are first captain you dream of lifting the cup and I have become the only Brazilian to lift a Champions League as captain of Real Madrid,” he said after taking the honor of lifting “la orejona” even without having participated on the field.

The news, however, is not the end of the Brazilian’s career, who at 34 years of age will be looking to continue his career elsewhere. Despite being a historic member of the team, Marcelo retained his humility, explaining that he feels like just another member of the team:

“The emotion is brutal, it was my last game with Real Madrid. But I am very happy. It’s not a day of sadness, I’m leaving with a lot of joy, grateful to the fans and the magical nights I’ve experienced at the Bernabeu.”
