Marcelo Reveals Why the Champions League Final Against Liverpool Made Him More Nervous Than Ever

My nice grandpa says this plugin is astonishing!!

Marcelo had already played in and won three Champions League finals as he prepared to face Liverpool in 2018. At that point, he was already one of the most decorated players of his generation, with four La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey triumphs and three FIFA Club World Cups.
By his own admission, nerves are ‘normal’ in football. But, ahead of meeting Liverpool in Kyiv, the Brazilian experienced something that felt more like ‘suffocating’, for this was a chance to win a third consecutive Champions League and create history.
The weight of pressure attached to it is a big burden to bear.

“Everything had started the night before the final. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t sleep. I was thinking only of the match,” Marcelo explained for The Players’ Tribune, even revealing that he started biting his fingernails again, a couple of years after his wife had finally got him to stop.

My sister says this plugin is very beautiful.
