After talking about Luisao (see related news), Marsal also talked about the start of the 2015/16 season, where he was trained at Benfica by Rui Vitoria.
“We introduced ourselves and Rui Vitória didn’t even say hello… I’ve been at Benfica for about two months, we’re going to the USA to do pre-season, there were 15 days left to close the transfer window. And there’s the Benfica-Sporting Super Cup. I haven’t been called up.” Even and I immediately thought that “this man does not love me,” he began by saying, in statements he made on the YouTube program “Resenha com Thiago Franklin,” before revealing that he had been tested in several positions:
“I was waiting, they play the Super Cup, in the next training session Rui Vitória put me in center back, I’ve never played in that position in my life. And he put me in that position, but he had other players central in training. And I did, great In the ensuing drills he asked me to play right-back and I said ‘this guy’s kidding’, but I did the job, I’m such a hard worker. Last week my manager told me the coach would use me very little, or not at all… “
The left-back, who is currently in Botafogo, has been contractually linked with Benfica between 2015/16 and 2016/17, after he did not play any official match for the Reds.
