Marcelo won’t miss the matchday as he avoids election duty

Today, the Brazilian football player, Marcelo Vieira has traveled with the Real Madrid squad, despite fears that he would miss being in the important match for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final due to local elections. 

Real Madrid could have been without defender Marcelo since the football player was called for local duties at a polling station in Madrid’s regional vote on May 4, which is one day before Real Madrid’s rematch with Chelsea in London. But since the resident selected to attend the polling before Marcelo was present, the player was allowed to leave. 

Marcelo was selected for electoral duties

The Brazilian player got Spanish citizenship in 2011, and all citizens who are listed on the electoral register can be called to work at a polling station for €65 pay.

Marcelo did not appeal against the summons, and according to the Spanish press, the player had 7 days to plead justified and documented cause to prevent himself from being accepted. 

However, the club did everything to make a possible solution to free their player from the duties, and they had fears that if the appeals are unsuccessful, Marcelo won’t have the chance to travel with his club on the polling day, but would have to join his teammates on the match day. 

The club was concerned about Marcelo missing the training, and could also be late for Real Madrid’s COVID-19 testing protocols.
