Marcelo optimistic of quick Real Madrid return
Real Madrid defender Marcelo has reiterated his ambition to return to action for the club soon, as he reflects on the club’s desire for this season.
The Brazilian is one of a handful of Madrid’s players to have returned from international duty this week injured, having suffered a thigh strain whilst playing for the Seleção at the weekend, reports Football Espana.
However, the full-back is optimistic of a quick recovery; as he reflected on the club’s new third kit.
He said: “I’m getting better every day, I hope to be able to play soon.
“It is a very strong colour and I hope that it gives us energy and strength to win our games in the League and Champions League.
“We want to go as far as possible in the Champions League, we know it is hard but we have the ambition to bring great joy to the fans.”
This weekend sees the team travel out to Villarreal and the 25-year-old is optimistic of their chances.
He added: “We are well, we have a strong team. The match against Villarreal will be difficult as they are at home, but with ambition we will win.”
