Marcelo happy to be mentor to Real Madrid teammate Vinicius Junior

Marcelo is happy to act as a mentor to young Real Madrid teammate Vinicius Junior.

The veteran is happy to see fans take to the fellow Brazilian.

"I'm helping Vinicius as much as I can. He's an amazing guy because he really listens and wants to learn. He's eager to pick up the language and start speaking Spanish. I enjoy writing things down for him to help him learn," said Marcelo.

"Whenever a new player joins, they are always given a warm welcome and well received. There's a great sense of unity, we're like a family and they have taught me values and how to respect others.

"Sergio (Ramos) and myself have been here a long time and we've seen a lot of players come and go. Sometimes, when new players arrive, you can tell that they can't really believe they are in the Real Madrid dressing room but when you first arrive at this club, that's the moment when it all starts."
