Марлос согласился играть за сборную Украины


The head of Committee of FFU national teams Miron Markevich said his former ward at Metalist, and now Shakhtar midfielder Marlos has given prior consent to play for the national team of Ukraine.

Talk about naturalization Marlos circulated in the Ukrainian media for a long time. In January 2017, the year will be exactly five years since the stay Marlos in Ukraine, and this means that the Brazilian will be able to obtain Ukrainian citizenship, which will give him full right to play for the national team.

Former coach Marlos for Metalist Myron Markevych was scattered in compliments to Marlos, stating that such by the national team of Ukraine will not interfere.

“When Marlos only brought to Kharkov, I almost immediately saw great potential in it. True, at first it had little to retrain in terms of tactics. Then midfielder added experience Mircea Lucescu, Paulo Fonseca, and eventually Marlos reached the category of a Mature artist.

Almost all the attacks of the miner are using Marlos. And what assists he hands out candy! Now, I think that the main weapon of the Miners. To us Marlos were a kid, and in miner, he became a man. He had a family, two children, maturity makes this player even more responsible not only on the field but also outside it.

If such performers in our country will be as much as possible, the championship will only benefit from this, then maybe the audience will go into the stands. Because until recently such conflict, as Dynamo vs Shakhtar, Shakhtar vs Metalist, Dynamo – Metalist were the matches of the European level, for which the watch was a pleasure.

Naturalization Marlos? The opinion I said six months ago. If a person has a desire to play for Ukraine, then why not use it, especially when it comes to such artist as Marlos.

For three or four years older, the young Ukrainian players, and now we need to use all opportunities to strengthen the national team. When I talked to him, the Brazilian gave preliminary agreement,” – said Markevich.
