Today marks the 10th anniversary of Marcelo's arrival at Real Madrid. The Brazilian wing-back was unveiled on 15 November 2006, arriving in the Spanish capital shortly after having celebrated his 18th birthday. Since then, he has gradually amassed experience within a squad of which he is currently the vice-captain, whilst also gaining the affection of the Madrid faithful, for whom he's an idol. His statistics speak for themselves in terms of his importance within the squad: 372 competitive appearances which have yielded 26 goals, despite his status as a defender.

In terms of silverware, he has won everything going during his time at Real Madrid.

Marcelo has lifted every single title going during his time as a madridista. His honours include the following 12 trophies: two Champions League crowns, one Club World Cup title, two UEFA Super Cups, three Liga titles, two Copa del Rey crowns and two Spanish Super Cups. Before 2016 is out he'll be bidding to add another piece of silverware to this list in the form of his second Club World Cup title.

Second-highest foreign appearance maker in Real Madrid's history 
Excluding Alfredo Di Stéfano, who represented the Spanish national side, Marcelo is the second-highest foreign appearance maker in Real Madrid's history and is only beaten in these rankings by his compatriot Roberto Carlos, who made 527 appearances as a madridista.
