Marcelo paid a special tribute to Raul during his emotional Real Madrid farewell ceremony.
The Brazilian left-back has spent the last 15 years at Madrid after joining in 2007.
During his time at Madrid, Marcelo has helped the team win 25 trophies, including six La Liga titles and five Champions Leagues.
Raul was Madrid’s captain when Marcelo joined the club at the age of 18 from Brazilian side Fluminense.
And during his final press conference with Madrid on Monday, Marcelo paid an emotional tribute to the former striker.
‘Raul, capi, I want to thank you for the detail you have had with me,’ Marcelo said.
‘When my son Enzo was born, you gave me a gift with many things for the baby and you gave me a lot of advice.
