Courbis worried about Marquinhos
Contacted by 24hfootnews.com, Rolland Courbis evokes the state of form of Marquinhosand the consultant of RMC Sports recalls that its difficulties are not new to the PSG : “ Among the players who receive a lot of criticism, I have the impression that Marquinhos is not bad. But if we dwell on his case for a few seconds, things are not going well for a long time. Ok, he missed his World Cup. He missed his penalty and he was the source of the equalizer for Croatia. But the beginning of Marquinhos’ problems dates from long before… It dates from the return match against Real Madrid, last season, in the Champions League “, explain Courbis.
“Bayern could be a turning point in his career”
He continues on this subject: The Marquinhos problem comes from Real Madrid, precisely. Some of the supporters resented Donnarumma, guilty of not having rolled on the ground after the buffer with Benzema. It’s true, he just had to lie down, be in pain and the referee would certainly have whistled a free kick against Benzema. With this error from Donnarumma, there is that of Mauricio Pochettino not to put Keylor Navas, but that is another story. But in this match, the match of Marquinhos… Since this meeting, his level collapses visibly. And for me, the match against Bayern Munich could be a turning point in the rest of his career at PSG… “. The message got through.
