A Video Of Marcelo 'Trusting Cristiano Ronaldo On The Pitch' And Celebrating Before He'd Even Scored Goes Viral

A video of Marcelo celebrating Cristiano Ronaldo's goals before he had even scored them during their time at Real Madrid has been labelled "the best thing you will watch today."

Los Blancos legend Marcelo announced that he will leave the Spanish club at the end of his contract during an emotional farwell press conference alongside president Florentino Perez on Monday.

The Brazilian full-back, who was labelled the next Roberto Carlos when he joined Madrid in 2007 from Fluminense, was visibly emotional during the event, as was current Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Many players, past and present, continued to pay tribute to the 34-year-old on social media throughout the day, including former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

He wrote: "More than a teammate, a brother that football gave me. On and off the fields, one of the biggest stars with whom I had the pleasure of sharing a locker room.

"Go with everything on this new adventure, Marcelo!"

Marcelo made 545 appearances in all competitions for the La Liga champions and won 25 major honours, including five Champions Leagues.

And many of the above were lifted alongside Ronaldo. The pair enjoyed an incredible relationship, both on and off the pitch, and a video of the Brazilian 'trusting' the five-time Ballon d'Or on the pitch has gone viral.

Marcelo paid tribute to everyone associated with Real Madrid in his press conference.

"Thanks to my teammates, coaches. But above all to the kit men, to the security, to the people who work behind the scenes and have dirty work," he said.

"I want to highlight their work, because I only dedicate myself to playing and I always had everything ready. I want to thank my wife, because she has always been by my side since I started playing football. If I am what I am today, it is because of you Clarice.

"When I left Brazil I had in mind to play the Champions League. And today I leave here being the player with the most titles in the history of the biggest club in the world."
