I already knew that I wasn’t going to stay, and that my fantastic time at Real Madrid was coming to an end

The Legend

He made a switch from the Brazilian side to Madrid back in 2007 where he made 546 appearances during 15 seasons for the Spanish champions.

It’s also notable that while at Madrid he won a total of 25 trophies, 6 LaLiga titles, 5 champions leagues, 2 Copas del Rey,5 Spanish Supercopas,3 UEFA Super Cups and 4 Club World Cups.

What a legend?

“I already knew that I wasn’t going to stay, and that my fantastic time at Real Madrid was coming to an end,” he said.

Last dance

He went ahead to state, “And I started to cry, crying without being able to stop, and I said to myself: What are you doing? You’ve got to start walking. And I couldn’t.”

I lost the strength in my legs. I crouched down, I thought, I cried. I said, “This can’t be happening.”

I think that’s where I realised, in that moment, that my time at Real Madrid had ended. Right there. I hadn’t, before that moment”, he told ESPN media

We wish you all the best MARCELO.
