Highlight Fluminense In CONMEBOL Libertadores 2024 with two goals and one assist in two matches, Marquinhos held a press conference on Thursday, at the Estadio CT Carlos Castillo. The striker, who is on loan from Arsenal until the end of the year, was asked about the work of coach Arteta, the English team’s coach, and Fernando Diniz. The 21-year-old tried to find similarities between the two, but expressed his appreciation for the tri-colored leader by saying that it is a very original work.

– With Arteta, there is a little bit of admiration for the ball, and suggesting the game all the time. But Professor Fernando is completely different. It's hard to say, it's just different. I don't think anyone in the world does that. He's just here Fluminense. The similarity between wanting to suggest the game, to be attacking, has some relevance to Arteta. But the way we play, everything we do here is unique to him, and I don't think anyone in the world does that.

I really like the game. I think when a Tricolor fan made that joke, I didn't take it as sarcasm or anything like that. I hope I can score more goals in this shirt and that the fans will talk more about “Relâmpago Marquinhos”.

Marquinhos also recounted the difficulties of adapting to European football and stated that he did not see any obstacles in coach Fernando Diniz's improvisations – Marquinhos had already played twice as a full-back.

– From my first contact with Professor Deniz, he made it very clear to me that I would come here not only to play in my position, but also to learn how to play in other positions on the pitch. For me it was calm when he came to me the week before the game, talked to me and if I could help him. I once played for Sao Paulo with Rogero Ceni. For me, it's not just news. I went there and I thought I played a great game playing on the wing. I'm here to learn from him and the whole group.

– The teacher also asks us a lot about playing without the ball. He says the main factor is that without the ball we have to steal faster and be closer to the opponent's goal. Being a winger or winger I think is good. I try to do the role well and learn from it.
