The Brazilian side, at 31, lived one of his worst moments last year as a Real Madrid player, when Solari condemned him to the bench to give Reguilón ownership. His future at the club was in the air, but Zidane’s return to the bench changed everything. With the French he has recovered the smile and, although he is not an undisputed holder, he is once again an important piece in the squad.BraziliansMarcelo has become accustomed to raising white titles (go 21), although the celebration was special for the two who premiered his record as Real Madrid (Militao and Rodrygo), while Casemiro raised his thirteenth cup with Madrid. Vinicius, meanwhile, won his second trophy after the Club World Cup won last season. Marcelo is no longer indisputable to Zidane. With half of the season contested, Mendy has played more minutes than him: 1,222 ’of the French versus 825’ of the Brazilian. A new role that the coach made evident in the Spanish Super Cup, a competition in which Mendy started in both games. Marcelo barely played 19 ’and it was when the match against Valencia was fully sentenced (3-0).Despite this, the left-handed side celebrated his 21st white title with joy and without bad faces. He did it especially with the other four Brazilians of the team (Casemiro, Vinicius, Militao and Rodrygo). The tune between them is total and the most veteran (Marcelo and Casemiro) have been key in adapting the three young people who have incorporated Madrid between the current and previous years.
