Last night’s UEFA Champions League final lived up to every bit of his expectations, except for a couple of questionable calls from the referee. We had several talks about some people being on a revenge mission, but thankfully, the better team won.
Real Madrid’s Champions League triumph gave their captain, Marcelo the opportunity of ending his Real Madrid career on a high as he made it known that the Champions League final was his last match for the club. “It was my last game with Real Madrid,” says, the 34-year-old.
Marcelo was Real Madrid’s captain for just one season after he took the mantle of leadership from Sergio Ramos, who left for Paris Saint Germain last summer. It was enough to make history though, as he became the first foreigner to captain the club since 1904.
He also leaves the club as the most decorated player in the history of Real Madrid, having won 25 trophies with the club. Marcelo has been linked with Fluminense, his childhood club and a free transfer could happen. Nothing is official for now, so the decision is left for Marcelo to make.
