Considered one of the best left-backs in recent decades, the Brazilian Marcelo in his career has worn only two shirts: the first was that of Fluminense, a club in which he grew up football and stood out from the great European scouts.

The second is that of Real Madrid, a club that Marcelo has been defending since 2007. Having arrived at the Bernabeu as Roberto Carlos' designated heir, the Brazilian took some time to understand the rhythms of European football and therefore to establish himself following his ultra characteristics offensive. Then, once he won the starting shirt, nobody was able to pull it off.

Full-back of great race and excellent technical quality, in recent years he has also grown tactically becoming a real pivot of Real Madrid dominator in Europe, thanks also to an extraordinary empathy with Cristiano Ronaldo blanco. Even with Sele├žao he has become the undisputed owner of the role over time, contributing to the most recent successes. He obviously won a lot in his career: 4 Spanish championships, 4 Spanish Super Cup, 2 Copa del Rey, 4 Champions League, 3 UEFA Super Cup, 4 Club World Cup, a bronze and an Olympic silver medal and a Confederations Cup. Today Marcelo performs 32 years old and who knows, after the interests of last summer, Juventus will not return to thinking about the Brazilian right on CR7 assists.
