Marcelo believes “no-one compares” to Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo after his brace against Sevilla on Saturday.
Ronaldo followed up the fifth Ballon d’Or of his career with two goals in Madrid’s 5-0 demolition of Sevilla, drawing the highest possible praise from Marcelo.
“I’m a fan of Ronaldo’s, that’s clear,” the left-back said after the game.
“Cristiano and Messi are different. Each one has their own history and credit. We’re privileged to live in the same era as these two.
“For me, Cristiano is the best player in the world. I didn’t see Maradona or Pele play [live], but what I know is that no-one compares [to Ronaldo].
“We’re happy with our squad, if someone else comes in, they’ll be welcomed, but I’m delighted with how the youngsters are doing.
“To be at Real Madrid, it means that you’re a mature player, even if you’re very young.
“Now we’re thinking about the Club World Cup. After that, we’ll think about the Clasico.”
