Marcelo: We are not giving up on La Liga


Real Madrid defender Marcelo has claimed Los Blancos are not going to give up on La Liga, despite trailing Barcelona by nine points after drawing against Malaga on Sunday.

“We knew it was going to be complicated. We have failed in several aspects, but we will keep fighting. We had the game under control. Now we have to analyse where we have failed and correct it,” the Brazilian explained.

Los Merengues seem to struggle every time they play away from the Santiago Bernabeu. Asked about their problems, Marcelo admitted: “We have drawn today and that is like a defeat. Both home and away games are complicated, our rivals always give their best and it is difficult, but we have to move on.”

Speaking of their chances to win La Liga after this blow, Marcelo was optimistic: “La Liga has always been complicated, and it is even more now. It is obvious that we are below and they have a big advantage, but we have to keep trying. We are not giving up because there are many points still into play.”
