Marquinho Presented at Verona


On-loan Brazilian winger Marquinho was presented today as a Hellas Verona player. The Brazilian was sent to Verona on-loan until June, with an option for the Venetians to purchase 50% of the rights to the player.

“Inter? I do not think I had a chance to leave Italy but there were many problems related to the loan and redemption. In the end I decided to come to Verona, which is a nice place. I give great credit is Sogliano, who did a great job convincing me. Brazilians in Verona? I know Romulo very well, I spoke with him to find out about the team and the city, and I have heard only good things. My role? I’m a versatile player, I like to keep the ball. I’ll play where the coach puts me and I always try to give my best. I have played many roles, but I do not suffer from the comparisons to Hallfredsson. My natural position is the one that is similar to him, but I will give my best in whatever role I’m given.”

“The team? Verona is very emotional. Sunday in Emilia-Romagna, when I was on the bench, I saw my teammates and the participation of the coaching staff, which I like. Salvation? This team has the ability to go high, perhaps in the Europa League. I’ve been here for a little less than a week but I saw that the people in the environment are quality. The fans? They made a very good impression on me. I’ve seen, even in Emilia-Romagna, the fans who sang from the beginning to end and have always supported the team. It gives an extra boost and helps the morale of the players.”
