Arsenal loanee Marquinhos’ incredible debut yesterday left David Wagner speechless

About Football Express UK

David Wagner, the manager of Norwich City, is extremely impressed by Arsenal loanee Marquinhos.

Wagner singled out Marquinhos for appreciation in his remarks to the Eastern Daily Press following Norwich’s 2-0 victory over Cardiff City yesterday.

On January’s transfer deadline, the 19-year-old winger moved to East Anglia.

Since then, he has twice been an unutilized substitute and momentarily missed practise due to a muscle issue.

He did, however, make the best possible first impression on the supporters of Norwich City yesterday.

He sent the ball to fellow Brazilian Gabriel Sara, who then used long range to score against Norwich.

The teenager later increased Norwich’s lead by two goals by finishing a cut-back with a strong shot into the far corner.

David Wagner was ecstatic with how Marquinhos, who also scored on his Arsenal debut, performed in front of goal.

It’s a terrific beginning to life in the Championship, despite the fact that he still has a lot to learn.

He now has the chance to continue playing and support Norwich as they attempt to return to the Premier League.

Wagner happy with the Brazilian’s debut

Speaking about the Brazilian’s debut, Wagner said: “We’ve seen enough in training that we have the belief and the confidence to give him the shirt. I think he paid it back.”

“You can’t ask for more in your first game than a first start, first goal, first assist, even if we know, and he knows as well, we have a lot of work to do with him. I’m very pleased for him.”

“He’s a very calm guy, and a very smart guy as well. He understands football and he understood as well what happened so far.”

“We should not forget he is very young, just 19, and when he came here he got injured and it took a little bit of time.”

“Now we all together can look forward to working with him.”

Marquinhos would need to adjust to the physicality of the league. It is significantly different from playing for Arsenal’s under-21 team, according to Wagner.

The Brazilian will have to make quick decisions while keeping in mind the advantages and disadvantages of each teammate.

Many upcoming stars have found the Championship to be the ideal setting in which to develop their skills.

This season, Charlie Patino has been a standout for a struggling Blackpool squad, and Brooke Norton-Cuffy has excelled for Coventry City.

For the remainder of the season, Wagner is hoping Marquinhos can continue his success away from Arsenal.

If he performs well, he might establish himself as a valuable first-team option at The Emirates the next season.
