MADRID, 24 May. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Real Madrid player Marcelo Vieira assured this Tuesday that “the experience and having won other Champions does not weigh anything”, for which he insisted that they will have to leave “the soul” in the “difficult” Champions final against Liverpool.

“The experience and having won other Champions does not weigh anything. On Saturday it is 50-50. There is a mixture of experienced and young players. All the finals we have played have been very difficult, we have had to almost die on the field, we have to leave my soul on the pitch,” the Brazilian told the media during Real Madrid’s Media Day in Valdebebas.

For the side, who this Saturday (9:00 p.m.) will play his fifth Champions League final with Real Madrid, all European titles generate “pressure” in the merengue team. “They demand a lot from us, all the Champions Leagues are very demanding,” he said.

Marcelo explained his role with the youngest, who this Saturday will have their first final of the highest European competition ahead of them. “My role has always been the same, I always try to help young people. That’s how Raúl, Roberto Carlos, Ramos, Casillas taught me…” he said. “They are the future of Real Madrid. We talk every day,” he commented on Rodrygo, Vinicius, Camavinga, among others.


The Brazilian recalled his goal in the ‘Décima’ final in Lisbon in 2014, when he was a substitute, but ended up scoring in extra time. “It was an explosion of pleasure, something inexplicable, I passed a movie from when you were little through your head, in just five seconds,” he recalled.

Finally, Marcelo addressed the issue of his renewal, since his contract ends in June of this year. “I have a clear idea, I want to stay, I have said it 50 times, soon you will know,” he settled.
