Thanks to Real Madrid’s victory on Sunday in the Spanish Super Cup against Bilbao (2-0), Brazilian side Marcelo won his 23rd title with the Merengues. The Brazilian defender thus equals Madrid legend Paco Gento in the title of the most extensive awards in the history of Real. Thanks to this new success, Marcelo also surpasses another legend of the “White House”, his former partner in defense Sergio Ramos, who now plays at PSG and won ” only “ 22 titles with the Real jersey.
Since his arrival in the Spanish capital in 2007, the Brazilian has won 5 Spanish championships, 4 Champions Leagues, 4 Club World Cups, 3 European Super Cups, 2 King’s Cups and 5 Spanish Super Cups. At the end of his contract next June, the 33-year-old defender, who only played a few minutes in the final on Sunday, has limited playing time this season, as he is overtaken in the hierarchy of left-back Merengues by the Frenchman Ferland Mendy.
