Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is backing left back Marcelo to find his form after poor performance in the recent past.
The defender’s performances for Real have been below par this season but Zidane is eager to support his player.
The Brazilian did not have one of his best games in Madrid’s 2-1 defeat at Valencia, yet the Frenchman backed the left-back.
The full-back has been a crucial player for Los Blancos in recent years, particularly in Zidane’s first stint as coach.
“Marcelo is Marcelo and I like how he plays,” he told the press conference after the match.
“I like how he plays and I see him in good shape.”
Zidane also revealed his intention to offer Marcelo more playing time until the end of the season.
After having featured in three consecutive games as a starter, the experienced defender will not play against Eibar on Saturday, due to suspension.
With eight games to go, Zidane is eager to help Marcelo recover his form and show off his skills that turned him into one of the best left-back in the world.
