VIDEO: Real Madrid Star Marcelo Showcases His Skills in Training Tekkers Footage

Tuesday September 5th, 2017

Footage has emerged of Real Madrid Star Marcelo showcasing his awesome skills in front of goal in a training session for the La Liga giants.

Depsite the fact that the seasoned defender is embarking on his 12th season at the Bernabeu, the 29-year-old looks to be in the prime of his playing career.

The video, posted by the club's official twitter, shows Marcelo superbly controlling a crossed ball in the box, before elegantly taking it round two defenders and slowly sliding it in the net past the keeper.

Madrid began their latest La Liga campaign with a crushing 3-0 victory over Deportivo La Coruna, but Zinedine Zidane's side were frustrated by a stubborn Valencia side that held them to a 2-2 draw.

Zidane will hope his side can ease their way past Levante on Saturday as the Frenchman looks to put their struggle against Valencia behind them.

Real also begin their Champions League campaign against Cypriot First Division side Apoel Nicosia who travel to the Bernabeu next Wednesday.

Zidane will be looking to make history this season with a third consecutive Champions League conquest.
