What was Marcelo trying to say to the crowd with his goal celebration?

24 Oct 2018

As he did on Saturday against LevanteMarcelo scored at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday, this time against Viktoria Plzen.

He pointed to the badge after scoring, looked at the fans and then waved his finger as if to say ‘no’.

It’s not clear what exactly the Brazilian was referring to.

Rather than smile, he looked serious as he made his gesture.

It could have been a reprimand to the crowd for whistling the team at points during the match, while it might also have been a message to say that he is not leaving, having been linked with a transfer to Juventus this week.
