Full-back Marlon made a mea culpa for the goal Cruzeiro conceded in the 2-2 draw with Atlético-MG and left the game criticizing the pitch at Arena MRV, which hosted the first leg of the Campeonato Mineiro final.

The player was the first to be dribbled by Bruno Fuchs, who went past Lucas Romero and finished opening the score. Marlon suggested that the personal carelessness in the move was due to the fact that Fuchs was a defender and, therefore, perhaps he did not indicate that he would make an individual play towards the goal.

“Without taking away Bruno Fuchs’ merit, but he is a technically inferior player as he is a defender. He has his quality, he has his merits for scoring a goal, but it was more of an individual failure on my part. That cannot happen, the end is a detail.”

– Congratulate him on the goal. Of course, I’m not going to take away from him, but we had a very bad first half. Atlético were superior. He controlled the game very well in the first half. We were very low. And, in the second half, we came back different, we came back managing to deliver the football we are used to, managing to impose ourselves in the game, knowing Atlético’s weaknesses, we were patient. I could have come away with the victory.

Marlon also criticized the Arena MRV pitch and said that this factor harms even Atlético-MG itself, which has quality players.

“Here, because it’s a very beautiful stadium, it has a very bad field.”

– I’m not saying it because it’s the rival’s, but Atlético is a team with a lot of quality, sometimes they are hampered by having a bad pitch too.

The MRV Arena was opened in August last year and, until the end of the Brazilian Championship, it was a source of criticism from some players from other clubs. Atlético-MG is even considering the application of synthetic turf, but there is still no date for it to occur.
