Real Madrid defender Marcelo vows to return to action as soon as possible.

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has revealed that he will do "everything" in order to speed up his recovery process.

The 24-year-old suffered a fractured foot on international duty with Brazil and is expected to be sidelined for the next three months.

"I hope this will be the first and the last time I pick up a serious injury. I would not wish this on anyone," Marcelo told the club's official website.

"I will do everything I can to return quickly and be with the team again. I want to make a full recovery so that I can bring more joy to the fans.

"These things can happen during training or in a match and now what I have to do is do things properly so that I can get back on the team as soon as possible. If I keep my head up and don't lose heart, my teammates and my family will help to me to get through this."

The left-back will undergo an operation on Friday.
