Marcelo dans OL Access : "Mon objectif est de laisser mon empreinte dans ce club"
Brazilian Olympique Lyonnais defender Marcelo was invited on OL Access where he discussed several topics such as his own situation, the team's upcoming matches and the Champions League.

The matches against Juventus, Saint-Etienne and Paris


"That's why we play football. I can't wait to play these matches. When you win, you forget the fatigue too (laughs). When we play football, there is always psychological pressure but we will have to concentrate as much as possible. PSG are very strong so despite the defeat against Dortmund, they will play at 100% against us in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France. I hope the fans will be behind us because we need the supporters to win these difficult matches. "



"They have a very good defense but also offensive quality, especially with Ronaldo. If we play a good match and play well here, we might be able to try to earn qualification there. It makes me happy to play against players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. I think both are difficult to defend. I hope to help OL as best I can. When I was little I played on pitches without grass and today I’m playing against players like Cristiano. It’s amazing. "


His own situation this season

"I’m very happy to play in this team. I’ve had good times and bad times but that’s normal. I’ll always give 100% for Olympique Lyonnais so that we can go as far as possible I will make every effort to bring a trophy to Olympique Lyonnais. I learned a lot from my situation this year. I learned to forgive but the important thing is that now everyone is happy. Reconciliation with the supporters was extraordinary and will remain a great moment in my time here. It was useless to feed this argument because we are all on the same boat. We will all go to look for something together now. My goal is to leave my mark on this club . "
