Last 4 November 2023 will always be special for Fluminense and all their fans because they won their first Copa Libertadores, at Maracaná Stadium and against a historic club like Boca Juniors.
In addition, there is a player from the Brazilian team, Marcelo, who added his 30th trophy to a list of absolute legends. The left-back took his first steps in the team of his life, Flu, which catapulted him to one of the greats of European football, Real Madrid. After an enviable career at the Santiago Bernabéu, the Carioca decided to burn the last of his European hopes at Olympiakos (Greece) before returning to Rio de Janeiro to lift South America’s most important club title.
Marcelo’s list of honours includes an endless list of titles, including 5 Champions League titles with Los Blancos and 1 Confederations Cup with the Seleção.
Before all these awards, in April 2004, with Brazil’s youth team and still without being a professional, Marcelo won the MICFootball in a thrilling final against FC Barcelona that was decided from the penalty spot.
Marcelo thus joins the list of illustrious MICPlayers who have triumphed around the world after playing in the MIC, the tournament where stars are born.
