Re: Nutmeg Maestro With an Afro : Viera Marcelo

The 2006-2007 season saw the lights go out on the Real Madrid career of superstar Roberto Carlos. He left the club in the summer of 2007 after 11 campaigns. A few months earlier the Whites prepared for his departure by bringing in another Brazilian, a talented 18-year-old by the name of Marcelo.

Nine years later and Marcelo has proved himself to be a worthy successor to Carlos. He rules Real Madrid's left flank just like his legendary compatriot used to. Together they have starred in two decades of Brazilian reign at left-back and built a samba super highway along that flank.

And the duo do not just share their nationality: their careers at Real Madrid also bear a number of similarities. They even arrived under the same manager, ten years apart: Fabio Capello.

They have won almost the same trophies, they have played almost the same number of seasons, they have both been captains and they are the foreigners to have worn the white of Real Madrid on most occasions. They are also two of the best-value signings in the history of the club. Carlos cost 3.6 million euros and Marcelo 6m.

The attacking football they play also unites them. Carlos was a handful, frighteningly quick and boasting a cannon of a left foot that notched up 67 goals - an outrageous statistic for a defender. Marcelo is of a similar vein. Less explosive, but possessing pace and skill in abundance which make him a key component in attack. His 25 goals are not to be sniffed at, either.

Nearly 2 hours of football and his legs had it in them to do that. Unreal.

Totally unbelevible. I just don't understand how he is not a full time attacker with that skill. I mean if bale turned. He is way more skilful.

I read it a couple days ago. Crazy how he almost quit football but his grandpa pushed him on.

Anyone else upset at Marcelo pulling a hamstring in the first month of the season? Nothing screams lack of preparation like a soft tissue injury after a few games, shame Theo hurt his shoulder too

not surprising. we knew all this going in, marcelo's not the fittest fiddle out there, he too is injury prone and has had injury issues throughout his time with us, even when he wasn't starting. its just that we've had bale and coentrao who have made other injury prone players look like cristiano. not a medical staff issue, never has been a medical issue

Out for a month.

Nacho at LB, which is ok. But we really need our strikers... to play like strikers lol. We literally cannot carry dead weight around.
