Real Madrid captain Marcelo has become the most iconic Los Blancos player in history after winning the Spanish title on Saturday.
A goal from Rodrygo’s first half with Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema in the first half gave Madrid a 4-0 win over Espanyol.
Madrid have wrapped up LaLiga with four games to go, their first home title since 1988-89 (also four), and their 35 titles are the highest in any of the top five European leagues.
Carlo Ancelotti has made a name for himself as he became the first coach to lift the trophy in the top five leagues in Europe (Spain, England, Germany, France and Italy).
Brazilian defender Marcelo has also made history with Madrid’s success, the defender who boasts more trophies than any other team player after his 24th victory.
Marcelo’s wardrobe includes four Champions League titles, four Club World Cups, three European Super Cups, six league titles, two Copa del Rey titles and five Supercopas de Espana titles.
“It’s the most incredible thing a player can face,” said Marcelo, who has played 545 games and scored 38 goals for Madrid.
“We won LaLiga because of the hard work of the whole team. We have to keep winning. This is the result of hard work, fun, sacrifice … We were able to win it by combining all aspects.” It’s the most incredible thing a player can experience.
“It’s a day of celebration, although we know we have an important game coming up, but it’s okay to celebrate and stay focused and motivated on Wednesday.”
Madrid’s attention will now shift to the second leg of the Champions League semi-final at home to Manchester City on Wednesday, with Pep Guardiola’s side stunned 4-3 on their way to the Spanish capital.
