Miguel Gutierrez hails Real Madrid teammate Marcelo: He advises me most

Miguel Gutierrez admits his Real Madrid breakthrough this past season was a dream come true.

The 19-year-old left-back made his official debut for Los Blancos in 2020/21 and expressed his gratitude towards Marcelo for the advice the Brazilian provided him with.

"Everyone in the first team has supported me a lot, especially the academy players who know what it is to rise through the ranks," Gutierrez told Real Madrid TV.

"And I am also very grateful to Marcelo because by playing in the same position he is the one who has been on top of me the most, the one who advises me the most, and the one who is always the first to help me."

Gutierrez, who gradually gained prominence to the point of starting Real Madrid's last three LaLiga Santander games, recalled his debut against Cadiz on April 21.

"Every academy player dreams of that moment," added Gutierrez.

"After so much work, the award came and I remember it as something very special and very beautiful."

The Real Madrid prodigy also made clear that debuting with the seniors and being given playing time in the last stretch of the 2020/21 campaign was a dream come true.

"For me what is happening to me is a dream," noted Gutierrez.

"I am with the best in the world and I will continue working to be able to experience this for many more years."
