Former Real Madrid defender Marcelo will leave Olympiacos after just two months due to fitness issues, a report said.
The left-back joined the Greeks after spending his entire career with Madrid in Spain, but a string of poor performances and an inability to keep up with manager Michel’s demands have complicated his stay so far.
According to FootMercato via The Sun, the club is ‘fed up’ of Marcelo’s failure to play even half of the football, as all his five appearances for the side have come from the bench to date.

The defender has yet to start a match and is struggling to get his condition up
He moved from Real Madrid, where he won five Champions Leagues, to Greece in the summer
The Brazilian won 25 major honors during his time at Real Madrid, including five Champions League titles.
He eventually left Los Blancos in the summer and moved to Greece, where he was hailed as a hero by supporters.
He has played just 121 minutes in all competitions so far this season and has shown little ability to reach the required fitness level.
It is believed that Michel has already decided that the 34-year-old does not fit into his future plans, and the club hopes to allow him to leave as soon as possible.
Olympiacos is currently fourth in the Greek Superleague, 12 points behind leader Panathinaikos.
