Marcelo's son joins Madrid academy
Marcelo signed for the Spanish side when he was just 18 years old, and now the La Liga champions have snapped up his son, who is only 13.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Alves signed his first professional contract with the club on Saturday, December 3.
What position does Alves play?
Unlike his father, who is a defender, Alves plays as a forward for the under-13 side. He is highly rated at Madrid's academy because of his pace and power. He also isn't afraid to break out Cristiano Ronaldo's SIU celebration when scoring.
A legendary Los Blancos career
There’s no question that Marcelo is a club legend at Madrid. As noted by Transfermarkt, he played 546 games for the side. As a defender, he scored 38 goals and notched up 103 assists.
He went on to win five UEFA Champions League titles, six La Liga titles, and two Spanish cups among the numerous trophies he won at the club.
A new start in Greece
After his legendary career ended in Spain, Marcelo found a new home in Greece. The Brazilian joined Olympiacos and was given a hero's welcome by the club’s fan base when he was presented to them.
