Brazilian star Marcelo extends Real Madrid contract






Real Madrid star, Marcelo has extended his 11-year stay with the Spanish giants by signing a new contract until 2022, the club announced on Wednesday.


The Vice-Captain, 29, has won three Champions League and four La Liga titles in over 400 appearances since joining from Fluminense in 2006.

The left-back, been suspended for Madrid’s next two La Liga games (On Sunday, to Real Sociedad and against Real Betis, September 20), after his ban for being sent off for a kick at Jefferson Lerma in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Levante was also confirmed on Wednesday.

Real will seek to put a disappointing start to their La Liga campaign behind them when they begin their defence of the Champions League title later on Wednesday at home to Cypriot champions APOEL Nicosia.
