Real Madrid’s Marcelo hits back at online critics

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has responded directly to social media criticism of his role in his side’s defeats this season.

A post on Instagram highlighted how Madrid had collected just five points from the last nine league games which the Brazilian started.

“All my fault!!! We keep going,” Marcelo wrote on his Instagram account.

The flip side of the graphic showed how Los Blancos had won each of the last eight La Liga matches which 22-year-old Sergio Reguilon has started.

Reguilon has been given increasing prominence in the starting XI by Madrid boss Santiago Solari.
