Marcelo thanks fans for support

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo has vowed to never be affected by racial abuse after allegedly being targeted by Atletico Madrid fans following Wednesday's Copa del Rey clash at the Bernabeu.

I want to thank all of you for the support you have given me today.

And even though this is not the first time it happens I can promise you that we are stronger than any kind of racism. This will never affect me or my family.
