Marcelo has pretty much made the left back spot his own during his 11 previous seasons at Real Madrid.
About to enter into his record breaking 12th season at the Santiago Bernabeu, for a foreign player, despite the arrival of Theo Hernandez from Atletico Madrid, Marcelo will still be Zinedine Zidane’s first choice left back.
Well, according to our recent poll.
What the poll asked?
Who will be first choice left back?
How you could vote
Theo Hernandez 10%
I think Zizou will rotate them 10%
The feeling in clear among those who voted with the Brazilian international a unanimous points winner over the young pretender to his throne.
Marcelo could come under some serious pressure from the Frenchman though, who hasn’t come to the Bernabeu to make up the numbers.
Hernandez will be included this season, he certainly will play a part, but Zidane has signed him with the longer-term in mind as Marcelo will be the go to man, more often than not, for Zizou.
Will that also be the case when it comes to goalkeeper Keylor Navas?
The Real keeper is preparing with the squad in LA for the upcoming season and Navas is ready to battle but how much of a fight will the shot-stopper have for his number one position at the Bernabeu.
