Marcos scores against former club Real Madrid
Marcos Alonso scored the winner in a pre-season fixture for the Viola against Real Madrid.
Marcos had grown up through the Madrid youth system before making his first team debut, for Manuel Pellegrini. So it was fitting that the Spanish left-back would be on target with a goal against his former club.
“It was incredible,” said Marcos. “I loved my time at Madrid, it’s a club I will always be close to with my granddad Marquitos playing for their most successful side. So to play against them and score was very special for me.”
“I still have a lot of friends there and it was good to see some familiar faces.”
“It was a good performance from us and it bodes well for the season that we can get results against the top sides in the World.”
