Marcelo blasted journalists after Real Madrid’s 2-1 win against Viktoria Plzen, accusing them of being jealous ‘because they don’t know how to play football’.
“I feel good right now,” said the left-back after Tuesday’s Champions League clash, referring to the knock he picked up in the second half.
“I took a heavy blow. The challenges I received can’t be let off. The referees have to see them.
“Lopetegui at Camp Nou? He’s wonderful. For me, he’s doing a great job. It’s hard when you don’t win but it’s you [journalists] who speak of a crisis.
“You all try to hurt this dressing room. It stems from jealousy because you don’t know how to play football.
“I dedicated my goal to [fitness coach Antonio] Pintus because I like him, plus he doesn’t have hair and I do.
“Leaving Madrid? I haven’t heard about any offers. No-one’s more of a ‘madridista’ than I am.”
