Brazil and Real Madrid Football Club left-back/left wing-back Marcelo Vieira da Silva Júnior, known as Marcelo, has been named the club’s new captain following the departure of club legend Sergio Ramos who joined from Sevilla in 2005 in a € 27 million deal.
The club president Florentino Perez confirmed the new development in a statement this afternoon.
“Marcelo will be our captain next season. It’s difficult to find another LB like Marcelo. He and Roberto Carlos have been the best in the history”, Florentino said.
The gifted left-back who has been with the club since 2007 will see his current contract expire in June 2022.
