Marquinhos: A Brief Biography

Marquinhos Biography


Marcos Aoás Corrêa is a professional footballer who hails from Brazil. Born on the 14th of May, 1994, Marquinhos is a defender who can also play as a right-back. He currently plays in Ligue 1 for Paris Saint-Germain.


Background


Marquinhos began his football career at the age of eight. He featured for the Corinthians in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. The youngster kept improving at a quick pace and won the 2012 Copa Libertadores with the Corinthians.


Debut


The defender made his full international debut on the 16th of November, 2013 against Hondurus.


Marquinhos was brought into the game in the 71st minute and Brazil won the game 5-0. This was his only game for Brazil in that year.


His first major tournament was the 2015 Copa America in Chile. However, he got just one chance in the tournament in the 2-1 win over Venezuela.


Rise to Glory


Marquinhos is a young player who has the talent to excel at the highest level and the temperament of a seasoned campaigner.


In January 2014, Marquinhos was named by British newspaper The Observer as one of the ten most promising young players in Europe.


On 19 July 2013, Marquinhos signed a five-year deal with French side Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of €31.4 million. At that time, it was the highest fee for a teenager.


He scored quite a few goals when he started playing for PSG. He scored in his UEFA Champions League debut against Olympiakos and against Toulouse in his second Ligue 1 game.


Marquinhos was a part of the winning PSG side who scored a record 86 points in the 13-14 season.


Low Points


Marquinhos did not have much to do in the 2014-15 and 2015-16 season. The duo of Silva and Luiz were in great touch thus providing limited opportunities to Marcos. There were speculations that the defender might leave the club in the following season.


But the new manager Unai Emery sold Luiz back to Chelsea and Marquinhos got more opportunities after that.
