Marcelo: Madrid ‘mess’ a concern


The Galacticos have performed well below their best this season and look to have already failed in their league title defence after just 17 matches this term.

And, speaking after Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo, a disappointed Marcelo said: “We’re trying to get out of this mess and we’re working to do that, but we don’t like this at all.

“It’s difficult because the more matches you draw or lose, the more the pressure increases. We can’t do anything else.

He added: “There’s no choice but to show your best face and fight. Fight and give your best so you can win.”
