Even the greats are football fans: Marcelo requests a photo with Maldini

10 Aug 2021

The friendly Real Madrid played against AC Milan left little to be remembered on the pitch, but an endearing video of Marcelo has since emerged from before the match.

Marcelo spotted Paolo Maldini inside the stadium and couldn’t resist asking for a photograph with the legendary Italian, looking like a shy child as he approached the retired defender.

Maldini humbly accepted with a laugh, admitting that he himself was going to ask Marcelo for a photo.

The pair are undisputed legends in European football, boasting as many as nine Champions League trophies between them.
