Marcelo Okay With Madrid Squad Despite Super Cup Loss
Real Madrid star, Marcelo says he is happy with the squad at Real Madrid, after their Super Cup loss on Wednesday.
Los Blancos lost their first international game since 2000, losing 4-2 to Atletico Madrid in Morocco.
Brace from Diego Costa, a volley from Saul and a Koke strike sealed the win for Rojiblancos.
Marcelo – who has been the subject of reported interest from Juve – told reporters afterwards: “You have to focus on what we did well today. I feel that we put in a good shift. We had the ball, played as a team, and we fought as best we could.
“We need to change our mindset because we have a whole season ahead of us. I don’t make the signings. The squad looks good to me. We are united as a group. We played a good game until extra time.”
“The winners are those who make fewer mistakes,” added the Brazilian left-back, who saw Karim Benzema equalise and Sergio Ramos put Madrid ahead before Atletico rallied. “Tonight, we failed and we don’t want to make those errors again because it cost us a final.
“They made fewer mistakes and deserved to win it. These are mistakes resulting from fatigue, from not much training. Many players have been late back due to the World Cup, but that is no excuse.”
