Marcelo: "Our Lisbon state of mind is still there"
“It's always a big match against Bordeaux, just like last season. It will be very important to win there. I am sure that the collective spirit that we saw in Lisbon is still there. I had never experienced that at OL. You have to have the same motivation, it's very important for the team. We must be positive. "
The departures of Rafael and Marçal
“It's hard to see two friends go. We spent three years together. It was wonderful. Our families were very close. But football is like that. They are happy so life goes on. We have to focus on the new season at OL. "
The mercato“Juninho will find the solutions so that OL can remain very strong this season and have a good season. It is very important for us to have a good league campaign. We have shown that we can play well and play as a team. The president, the sporting director and the coach will do everything to stay at the top. OL have won a lot of titles and it is in the image of this culture that they always want to win. The players who are here must be focused and give their all for OL. I'm sure that OL will regain their place in the Champions League. "
Playing with two central defenders
“We have the qualities to play in both systems. It will also depend on the matches to be played. The coach will decide but we are ready to play in both systems. "
“He has shown a lot of quality, even before his last start. He's putting in a lot of defensive effort to help us. He is a very important player for us. We have very good midfielders. "
