EPL Despite not speaking English, he is extremely well-liked. Arsenal star praised by Arteta. Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, has praised Marquinhos, a Brazilian immigrant, for being a highly popular player despite not having a strong command of the English language. The Gunners recruited Marquinhos this summer, and he made a strong impression in his debut last week against FC Zurich.
When given the chance to shine against Swiss opponents, Marquinhos seized it with both hands and scored after just 12 minutes.
With a precise cross, he also assisted Eddie Nketiah in scoring the game-winning goal.
After Marquinhos’ goal and passionate celebration, Arteta told media before to Sunday’s match against Brentford, “I was looking more at the faces of the rest of the staff and players.”
He is a highly well-liked footballer who, despite not speaking English, has gained everyone’s respect and affection for his grin and demeanor.
