After ten years away, Brazilian international Marcelo returned home to a hero’s welcome from Fluminense fans on Friday night at Maracan stadium.
After ending his contract with Olympiacos in Greece, the former Real Madrid left back has signed a two-year deal with the Brazilian club.
“It’s the best moment of my life, I am coming home. Thank you all! I am very, very, very happy! It’s a moment that I have always dreamed of, to be here with you. I have other dreams as well, which was to wear Fluminense’s jersey again, feel like a warrior again and fight for all trophies. I am sure we will have a wonderful year”, said Marcelo on Friday night before his supporters.
