🤍 😢 Si se te cae una lagrimilla viéndolo, normal…La emoción de @MarceloM12 en su adiós al @realmadrid🥰 El bonito recuerdo para utilleros, fisios… los que hacen el “trabajo sucio”💭 El recuerdo a @RaulGonzalez como “ejemplo” pic.twitter.com/lqchIeKR57
He said, per Marca: “Thanks to my teammates, coaches. But above all to the kit men, to the security, to the people who work behind the scenes and have 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 the Champions League. And today I leave here being the player with the most titles in the history of the biggest club in the world”.
He continued: “I am going to tell something that I have never told. But I want to thank Raúl, who is sitting there. You helped me a lot when I arrived and when my son Enzo was born, I will never forget that you gave me a gift, with many things for the baby, and you gave me a lot of advice.
“It’s going to be a day full of emotions. We want to pay a passionate tribute to our great captain, the boy who became a man at Real Madrid. We’re talking about a legend, the player with the most titles in Real Madrid’s history. We’re talking about Marcelo. Dear Marcelo, you have fulfilled all dreams. You have won absolutely everything. A total of 25 titles. You are without a doubt one of the best full-backs in the history of world football. You are an unrepeatable player. Your fantasy and happiness have been key for the conquest of the titles.
“You told us on the day of the celebration that it was a happy day. You should feel proud of everything your loved ones have been able to enjoy. I want to have a few words of gratitude for your whole family. Also for your dear grandfather Pedro, who took you to train.”
Former wonderkid but injuries ruined my football career (honestly). Once scored a last second equaliser against Charlton. Probably the biggest Jonjo Shelvey fan on the planet.
