Shakhtar midfielder Marlos spoke about the impact of political situation on the lives of players.
“It was a difficult year due to the fact that we did not have the support of the fans. We played all their matches away from home. This has affected our performance in the Champions League, if you look at how we played against Bayern Munich”, – quotes the words of Marlos Guardian.
“If we had a home match in Donetsk, we could achieve the best result. The people who attended that game, was cheering Bavaria than us,” said the player of Shakhtar.
“It was really difficult, because our families and loved ones in Brazil knew nothing about the local political situation. We should just explain to them that all is well with us that we have no problems. But they didn’t believe in it, because I heard in Brazil, only bad news. We tried to calm everyone down and to call at the first opportunity. My parents know that I’m all right,” added Marlos.
