Marcelino, full name Marcelino Elena Sierra, was signed by former manager Ruud Gullit in 1999. He has a big reputation which he had gained in his years with Real Mallorca.

A capable defender, but unfortunately a loss of form, which is probably due to a groin injury, kept him sidelined for most of his tenure at Tyneside.
