Marcelo bids farewell to Real Madrid without revealing his future plans.

He is leaving Los Blancos after winning his 25th title.

ixteen years after his arrival at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Marcelo bid farewell to Real Madrid as the player to have won the most titles in the history of the club, with 25 trophies.

Without revealing which club will be his next destination, the Brazilian left-back made clear that the time has not come yet for him to hung up his boots.

“I’m going to keep playing, I think I can continue,” Marcelo said at a press conference on Monday.

“When we have some [news about my future], I’ll talk about it on Instagram.

“If I ever have play against Real Madrid, there’s no problem, because I’m a professional and Real Madrid taught me how to be one.”

Marcelo also expressed his gratitude to all people at Real Madrid and his family who helped him make his dreams come true.

“Thanks to my teammates, coaches,” Marcelo added.

“But above all to the players, the physios, the security [personnel], the people who work behind the scenes and do the dirty work.

“I want to highlight their work, because I only dedicate myself to playing and I always had everything ready.

“I want to thank my wife, because she has always been by my side since I started playing football. If I am what I am today, it is because of you Clarice.

“When I left Brazil, I had in mind to play in the Champions League. And today I leave here as the player with the most titles in the history of the biggest club in the world.”

Marcelo’s playing time dropped over the last few years, yet the Brazilian full-back believes that he deserved to have played more under Zinedine Zidane and Carlo Ancelotti.

“I have spoken to the coaches and told them I wanted to play more,” noted Marcelo.

“It’s up to the coaches to decide. I can talk to them, but they decide. I have felt that I could play more, but everyone has their own philosophy and they decide.

“Maybe I have been selfish talking to Zidane and Ancelotti, but I understood that I could help in other ways.

“This year, I didn’t play in the Champions League final, but felt more important than in the four finals when I did play.

“There are ways to make an impact without touching the ball.”
