Marlos: That’s a crucial goal for me

The cup final hero commented on his team’s win
- That was a crucial goal for me! I hadn’t scored for a long while ... Just had no luck, the ball wouldn’t get into the goal, hitting the post and the crossbar. I worked a lot to help Shakhtar. In the first half, I didn’t convert the spot kick – I want to apologize for that to the fans and teammates. And then came the moment of truly unreal happiness! When I got the ball, at the same moment I knew that I would shoot on target. That's football, that’s Shakhtar – just what I love so much in my life! Therefore, I couldn’t restrain my emotions and cried immediately after the goal. We’ve produced a ‘golden double’, and we just must continue in the same vein next season. Paulo Fonseca is very important for us: he and the coaching staff gave the team full confidence in what we are doing. I hope we have many more happy moments ahead.
