Mazel Tov: Marcelo And Concentracion Pictures

6 Jan

Congrats to Marcelo! Tomorrow marks the 5th anniversary of his debut at Real Madrid. Here’s his thoughts in his own words.


From RealMadrid.com/ Translation by Michael J. O’Donnell

Marcelo: “It’s been a dream since the first day I wore this shirt”

“I remember my debut took place five years ago against Deportivo in the second half of the match and that I warmed up with Ronaldo; It was a very special moment”

Marcelo made his debut with Real Madrid against Deportivo La Coruña at Riazor Stadium on 7 January 2007. Five years later, the Brazilian defender has become the team’s third captain and one of the best left backs in the world.

“I made my debut against Deportivo in the second half and I remember warming up next to Ronaldo. It was very special to me because I came on for Michel Salgado. I will never forget it. I was very young and all my family watched the game. It was incredible.”

“I’ve learned a lot here. It’s been a dream since the moment I first donned this shirt. Many players want to be on this team and I’m proud to wear this shirt in every game and to make the fans happy.”

“I scored my first goal against Sporting Gijon. It was special and I played as a left winger that day. I dedicated it to my yet-to-be-born son and my entire family.”

“I’ve given my all since I arrived and I hope to give much more to help the team. I’ve been here five years and I wish to stay many more. I believe I’ve matured over here and improved on many things. My teammates and coaches have helped me improve on a daily basis and to work to become a better player. It makes me immensely proud to wear Real Madrid’s shirt and to be the team’s third captain.”

“Every team tries its best against Real Madrid and we’ll try to take three points against Granada to remain leaders. We want the Bernabeu to continue having fun with us. It’s very important that every person that comes to see us play has fun.”

The boys shacked up, as ever, at the Mirasierra Suites for their concentracion. I bet the wild strip parchis games are afoot.
