Marquinhos talks about his second consecutive visit to South Korea.
The official press conference for the third leg of Paris Saint-Germain’s “Coupang Play Series” against Jeonbuk Hyundai on August 2 was held at the Busan Asiad main stadium.
After traveling to South Korea from Japan, PSG will meet Korean fans on a short two-day trip. Neymar’s participation is uncertain and Kylian Mbappe is not on the tour, so PSG will be without their two superstars, but South Korean international Lee Kang-in will be a big presence.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Marquinhos said, “Tomorrow’s game is a high level opponent and we need to prepare well. The goal is to improve every week, every game. We have to work to build a good group and be a strong group.” (Photo: Luis Enrique, Marquinhos)
Marquinhos press conference Q&A
- You were with Brazil last year, what are your memories of that time?
We played two games and it was a good game and we were efficient. I saw the high level of Korean soccer players. It was a good opponent for a pre-World Cup match.
- On winning the Champions League
We didn’t achieve our goal last year. It’s a long way to win the Champions League, so we have to take it one step at a time. We need to build a strong team and have good training. We have to be organized, coordinated, and in sync with the players to do well in the decisive games. 꽁머니지급
- There are many Brazilian players in Jeonbuk, do you know them?
We’ve already met and taken pictures. It will be an interesting game because PSG is in pre-season and Jeonbuk is in season. I don’t know if I will play all the minutes because Jeonbuk has a weekend game coming up, but it will be a good game for both of us. It’s a good memory to be welcomed in Korea in such a nice environment. I can see the love for football in Korea and I look forward to supporting them this season.
