Marist Football Club
Marcelo and Diego after the friendly match against West Honiara today at NAC.
Our new signings, Diego and Marcelo arrived on Thursday all the way from Sao Paolo, Brazil, and today they were introduced to all our players at our NAC training ground. After our friendly match today against West Honiara, the Brazilians were given time to speak to the club for the first as Marist player. This were their first words.
“We want to let you know that we are very happy to be here and be part of team Marist. I know how strong this team is because I played against you guys in the OFC champions League early this year. Marcelo and I are here to help you guys, and I hope you guys can learn from us as well and to make sure this season would be successful one for us. The reason why I accepted the call to come here is because you guys here are very similar to the Brazilians. Firstly, because of the quality you have, the technical part, and the other thing is because you guys are very humble. I travelled a lot playing football in many countries around the world and what I’ve seen here looks very promising. You have a lot of quality here and I am very happy to be part of the team.”
“We come here to help you help guys, and most importantly to win the title, I came here to be a champion. I hope to have a good competition with you guys here, and also to look ahead after the s-league, the OFC Champions league because I can see a lot of quality in the team, and there’s a big chance for us to get back. I can’t wait to start playing games and work with my new team mates. I am very happy to be part of this group”.
