Champions League

Marcelo sends an inspirational message to Neymar who is ruled out of the Real Madrid clash

Brazil and Real Madrid left back Marcelo is one of the most important figures in the Real Madrid dressing room and the Brazilian shares a strong friendship bond with compatriot Neymar. Neymar has been ruled out for 3-4 months after suffering an ankle injury in a league game and he misses the much anticipated clash against Real Madrid.

Neymar is also in danger of missing the World Cup if he doesn’t recover in time. However, his compatriot Marcelo has sent him a beautiful and inspirational message, which would surely help him to heal quicker.

While talking to YouTube channel Segue or Baile, Marcelo said about Neymar:

“When you suffer a mishap you start to see things differently and to notice more.”

“A film passes through your head. They are periods in which you learn many things and that you have to do from then on.”

“When you’re out for so long and you’re in so much pain you start getting bored.  And you start to tell yourself ‘I have to work like this or that way so as not to injure myself again, I’m going to go to bed early, I’m going to improve my diet.’

“Neymar already knows that people are with him, that Brazil is with him.”

“The situation is difficult, but we are all sending him positive energy. I’m sure he’ll come back stronger and I also send him a message of encouragement.”

Real Madrid face Paris Saint Germain tomorrow in a much anticipated second leg clash at Paris. Real Madrid won the first leg 3-1 at home.
