Speaking on RMC, German technician and PSG manager Thomas Tuchel discussed the possibility of Brazilian central defender Marquinhos becoming a fully-fledged defensive midfielder.
“Marquinhos is very different to Giovani Lo Celso, he has a lot of qualities that we are looking for. He is very fast, strong in his head. He is a support system on the psychological plan, a player that sacrifices himself voluntarily. That is very important, when we see players like Casemiro, Fabinho, N’Golo Kanté at Chelsea or Sergio Busquets at Barcelona. That is what makes a difference in this position. I think that Marquinhos has a lot of qualities that destines a player to play as a defensive midfielder.”
