Cristiano Ronaldo might be the headline act at Real Madrid, but the supporting cast are more than capable of putting on a show of their own if Marcelo is anything to go by.

The full back has been a valuable player in attack as well as defence for many years with both Real Madrid and Brazil, but this training ground goal proves he’s more than just a defender with pace.

Touch, vision, a cool finish – will someone put this guy up front?

Marcelo only scored two goals in La Liga last season, but is clearly capable of eye-catching efforts.

However, after more than a decade as both a Real Madrid and Brazil player, you would expect him to have a few skills in the locker.

Try developing flair like that while playing for West Brom.
