What Marcelo Has Said About The Champions League Final Is Spot On
Marcelo is sick of the constant talk deflecting Real Madrid's incredible Champions League triumph.
Despite Real Madrid claiming a third consecutive European title, the main takeaways from the Champions League final was Sergio Ramos' incident with Mohamed Salah and Loris Karius.
The Spaniard clashed with Salah who landed awkwardly on his shoulder, leaving the field injured and in tears.
But he's reportedly set to represent Egypt at the World Cup. Phew.
As well as tangling with the Egyptian King, Ramos also appeared to accidentally strike Karius.
Experts claim the German stopper suffered concussion. His head trauma has dominated headlines.
Which has annoyed Marcelo who feels that Real Madrid's achievement in Europe's elite club competition is not being appreciated.

"I have known Sergio Ramos for 12 years and it bothers me when we win three Champions League's in a row and everybody says that it either was because one player collided with a goalkeeper, or because one player had a red card or because of a red card that the referee did not see," he said via ESPN.
"It's annoying I think people should appreciate more the three trophies that Real Madrid won by their own merit and not by anything else.
"I think that people talk more about the collision with Loris Karius than the three goals we scored against Liverpool."

Of course, one of them three goals was arguably the greatest goal in a Champions League final. Gareth Bale executed a truly outrageous overhead kick to restore his sides lead, before netting another.
Marcelo added: "We won the Champions League and people say the goalkeeper was to blame. The poor goalkeeper was blamed for the entire team. All the blame was on him.
"But things like this happen in football."
Real Madrid made Champions League history by defending their title in 2017. And the Spanish giants continued to etch their name in the record books by bagging a third title in a row.
