Indication from the Soweto giants is that Marcelo is currently in England with Pirates’ Project X 2019 team that has been scheduled to play a series of friendly matches against foreign teams. 

As confirmed from Pirates, the Project X team got their tour of England underway with an impressive 4-1 victory over Sutton United at Gander Green Lane in their first match this week. 

“With two days of training and cold weather under the belt, the Project X tour kicked off it’s first match with a resounding 4-1 victory over Sutton United at Gander Green Lane,” Pirates confirmed on the club’s official website.

Meanwhile, Marcelo’s name appeared on the list of players who started the match against Sutton United.
