Marcelo slams ‘small-time’ Valencia

Marcelo accused Valencia of “looking like a small team, wasting time” after Real Madrid’s draw, which “tastes like a defeat”.

Madrid needed a late Marco Asensio strike to avoid defeat to Valencia in a 2-2 draw on Sunday evening, but the left-back slammed Los Che for their negative approach.

“The draw tastes like a defeat, we had to win, but that’s football,” he said after the game.

“Valencia’s attitude? They looked like a small team, wasting time. Ronaldo and Ramos? They’re two great players and they help us a lot, but we can’t think we can only win with them.

“Foul in the box? I don’t know if Parejo’s contact was a penalty or not, but he touched me.”
