Real Madrid captain Marcelo: I deserve better here; I have been a f**king example

Real Madrid captain Marcelo has been recorded expressing his frustration as the club allows him to come off contract.

The incident took place during Los Blancos' last LaLiga Santander game of the season against Real Betis at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Friday, May 20.

"The club are not going to renew [my contract]," Marcelo is seen saying in a video released by Movistar+.

"I have been a f**king example."

Lucas Vazquez listened to what his teammate had to say before giving his take.

"It's incredible, man, we're not aware, it's not easy," replied Lucas.

During Real Madrid's Media Day ahead of the Champions League final against Liverpool on Saturday, Marcelo reiterated his desire to stay put for one more season.

"I want to stay, I've said it 50,000 times, but I'll talk to the club after the final," noted Marcelo.
