(Watch Video) Marcelo, Ancelotti, others break down in tears during emotional farewell to Real Madrid

Defender Marcelo broke down into tears during an emotional farewell to Real Madrid, where he has spent 16 years as a player.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, Raul and Dani Carvajal were equally in tears during the Brazilian’s farewell press conference.

The Brazilian signed for for Los Blancos in 2006 and has a haul including five Champions League titles, four Club World Cups and six La Liga crowns. Marcelo added that he “arrived to the club a boy and leave it as a man”.

His departure comes after his side beat Liverpool 1-0 in the Champions League final in Paris last month, his 25th trophy with the club.

Marcelo: “I tried to promise myself that I would try to speak normally. I wanted to thank the club, my teammates (crying), the coaches I worked with, the people who work at the club’s headquarters.

“Today is the happiest day since I’ve been in Madrid because as I leave I realise I’ve left a legacy.”
