NEWS | 15/03/2019 | Edu Bueno | PHOTOGRAPHER: Antonio Villalba"This book is something very intimate and I hope you like it," explained the second captain, who was accompanied by Kelyor Navas and Modric.
The act began with the screening of an explanatory video of the Method12 and the work of the Foundation, and then Marcelo took the floor: "It’s a special day. I wanted to thank Real Madrid, the Foundation, Navas and Modric...This book is something very intimate that we wanted to get out for everyone. I hope you like it. I’m very excited".
Butragueño: "It's a pleasure to participate in this book"
"It's a pleasure to participate in this. The Real Madrid Foundation is aligned with the concept of the power of transformation in people with a common element, sport. We collaborate with you on your campus with the objective of using football as the ideal way to transmit values. We want to thank you Marcelo for how sensitive you are to the Foundation's projects. Together we have to set an example and you are a great example for youth. Congratulate yourselves for your book and for the human message you convey and the values you want to share".
Caio: "The Foundation got behind us from the beginning"
"It's a very special and important day for us. I would like to thank the Real Madrid Foundation and the rest of the collaborators for getting behind us from the first moment and following us on this adventure".
Andrés Parada: "Thanks to the Foundation for helping us"
"Thanks to the Real Madrid Foundation for helping us and collaborating with us in this beautiful adventure. It’s a joy to link the projects of Marcelo and Caio to such a prestigious entity as the Real Madrid Foundation. Method 12 is a different, personal proposal, starting from the basis of physical education with three sports".
The volume tells the personal relationship of Marcelo and Caio Alves, a story of their lives united since they met at Fluminense in 2002, and the importance that sport, and football in particular, has had on their lives. Now they want to transmit it to all the young people in the world with their educational projects School12 and Campus12, the campus that is part of the Campus Experience of the Real Madrid Foundation, with the collaboration of the White club.
For charity purposes
Marcelo's book will be sold in the official stores of Adidas, as well as on Amazon and on the official website of Campus12, and will allocate a percentage of the profits to the socio-sport projects of the Real Madrid Foundation for the education and integration of disadvantaged minors. The event concluded with a group photo and the signing of books by Marcelo and Caio Alves for the attendees.
