Struggling Marcelo opens up about very close relationships with Zidane, Casillas & Ronaldo

Struggling Marcelo opens up about very close relationships with Zidane, Casillas & Ronaldo

12 Feb 2019, 09:05

Real Madrid left-back Marcelo has reflected on his relationships with departed Los Blancos legends Zinedine Zidane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Iker Casillas.

The Brazilian left-back who many rated as one of the greatest ever in his position, has suffered a sharp fall of form this season.

Marcelo opened up to the media about why he played his best football under Zidane, as well as missing his ex teammates.

"It was strange as most of us did not know about it because everything was wonderful and for me it was a shock," he told Esporte Interativo.

"We had a wonderful relationship as we talked every day; he was interested in me and he defended me.

"Zizou was very good to me as he was a professional, and I did everything for him; I ran, I fought, I played injured. Practically, I gave everything for Zidane.

"I had a very good relationship with Cristiano, his family and his girlfriend," he continued.

"I played 9 years with him and it's normal to be sad. {I was also sad] with [the departure of] Kiko Casilla, who was sitting next to me [in the dressing room].

"Every day I was saying, 'How are you Kiko, how are you doing?' and now I have no one next to me.

"On the other side I have Bale, but Bale does not speak [Spanish] as he only speaks English and we talk with gestures and I say, 'Hi, hello and good wine.

Marcelo concluded by responded to the rumours linking him with a move to Juventus.

"Leaving Madrid has never crossed my mind, I trust myself more than any other person and there is no reason to leave. If that happens, they can pay me and everything will be fixed. I trust in myself, in my work, but if the day comes when Madrid do not want me, I'm going. I'll be sad, but I'll go, though I'm sure that I'm not going to be offloaded."
