With the experience of having played the last two Premier League seasons for Wolverhampton, the left-back marçal is one of the bets Botafogo to make a good match against the crystal palace, in a friendly that takes place this Saturday at Selhurst Park. The player spoke about the expectation for the duel.
– We are motivated, Botafogo hasn’t made tours for a long time and we are playing against a team that participates in the best championship in the world, so we can only be motivated and happy to be here. We have a good team and it will be a very difficult game, very tough. I played against them in the last two years, they have a great team, but we have total conditions to win – said Marçal.
Botafogo only had two training sessions in England, on Wednesday and this Friday, in addition to a training game on Thursday against Charlton’s under-21 team. Despite the short adaptation time, Marçal said that the temperature difference problem is already being overcome.
– It was a good preparation, mainly to understand the climate, we come from a different climate in Rio de Janeiro. On the first day, it was a little muffled because there was that ice cream on the face, but the people are already used to it, we had an interesting training session today (Friday) and I hope we can win this game – ended the side.
