Marcelo takes a page out of Ronaldo’s book after a brilliant goal
The 34-year-old Brazilian celebrated his Olympiacos goal in trademark CR7 style.
Marcelo emulated former Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous goal celebration on Wednesday night.
The full-back took a leaf out of Ronaldo’s book after scoring for Olympiacos – the club he signed for last summer from Real Madrid – in a 2-2 draw against Atromitos in the last-16 of the Greek Cup.
He did it with a wonderfully taken volley and later tagged Ronaldo on Twitter with some pictures.
Siiiiiuuuuu!!!! @Cristiano 😜💜 pic.twitter.com/zVMe2Vm9lO

Marcelo and Ronaldo became close friends during their nine years together at Real Madrid. They won four Champions League titles and countless other honors during a glorious goal-laden period between 2009 and 2018.
They both ply their trade away from Madrid, with Ronaldo recently signing up for Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr on a two-year deal.
Marcelo, on the other hand, has bagged three goals in 10 games for Olympiacos. He scored a brace in the first leg of the round of 16 tie Atromitos and was on target again on Thursday.
The ex-Real Madrid captain’s goals helped his new team advance to the next round of the Greek Cup with a 6-3 aggregate win. Next up is a home league game against Aris.
