I’m full of emotions Shakhtar defender Marlon took part in the pre-match press conference on the eve of the Champions League group stage MD1 game vs Moldova’s Sheriff

- Is the Champions League a special competition for you? (Shakhtar.com)

- I’m just lost for words to describe the strong emotions I’m experiencing, because I will be playing in such a big tournament as the Champions League.


- Your playing style is reminiscent of Sergio Ramos’ one, although you used to play for Barcelona. What footballer is the role model in terms of your position and does this style interfere with the play? (Inter)

- Perhaps I learned to play with that aggressiveness and intensity when I worked with Roberto De Zerbi. Thanks for the comparison, but I think I'm still much inferior to Ramos. In general, my idols are Sergio Ramos and Thiago Silva.
