Depends which version of Marcelo we would be getting. If it’s 2011-2017 Marcelo then it would be a tremendous acquisition. However, if it’s 2018- current Marcelo it could be a disaster....particularly if he’s on high wages.
Notably, he has the tendency to look over weight so don’t think that really bodes well for a player entering his 30s.
He’ll need to work twice as hard to maintain his previous form or just to be up to pace with playing at the highest level and so far it doesn’t seem like he’s up to the task.
Completely different people and body shapes, just because they are both Brazilian doesn't mean that they both age the same way. His previous coach said just this week how he puts on weight easily and needs to be careful. Typically people put on weight more easily as they get older.
I like Marcelo and rate him highly but given the costs, his age and concerns over how long will play at a high level I don't think this is a good move.
Haha I cannot believe this , people don't want Marcelo here because of Sandro , fucking Sandro !!
It's been 2 years since he used to be good (Sandro) , he runs like headless chicken,atm I would start even Spina over him , I would rather have 50y old Marcelo over Sandro , i hope we are going to sell him , I'm tired of his bullshit .
