I want to retire at Real Madrid – Marcelo

The 26-year-old has been at the club for almost eight years but says he can already see himself playing out the remainder of his career at the Bernabeu


Marcelo has said he is enjoying life at Real Madrid and plans to end his career at the club.

The Brazil international joined the Liga giants almost eight years ago and has won a Champions League title and Uefa Super Cup as well as three league titles, two Copa del Rey trophies and the Supercopa de Espana twice.

The 26-year-old defender insisted he is content in Madrid and could see out the remainder of his playing days at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“I am very happy here and I want to stay here until I retire,” he said on his Facebook page in a question and answer session with fans.

“I have many great memories with this team but of course, now, I have to say that my favourite is the Decima. But it is difficult to choose a favourite.

All of my goals are special but if I had to think of one that is my favourite I would say the one that I scored in the Champions League final.”

Madrid are currently on a club-record run of 17 successive victories and are looking like strong challengers in every competition they are competing for. Marcelo confirmed The Treble is an ambition for Carlo Ancelotti’s side in 2014-15.

When asked if winning The Treble was a target, he said: “When you wear the Real Madrid shirt you should always fight for all of the titles and that is what we always do. We hope to give a lot of joy to our fans and that is our big objective.” 

Marcelo was also questioned on which player was faster between Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, to which the left-back replied: “Me, hahaha!”
