Marcelo has established himself as one of the best left-back in the world. The curly haired Brazilian has always owned the flank like it's his home. No other defender in the world has come even close to the attacking prowess the left-back has shown in almost every game he has played.

Many think that he has eclipsed ex Los Blancos legend Roberto Carlos, who immortalized himself in that position. The Brazilian has lifted a total of twenty trophies with Real Madrid including four Champions league. He won the 2013 Confederations Cup with his national side. Di Maria and Marcelo had an unstoppable duo at Real Madrid with the Argentinian covering up for the Brazilian on the flanks whenever he ran too deep.
