Marquinhos Hails "Special Coach" Tite
Paris Saint Germain defender Marquinhos has praised Brazil coach Tite as “a special coach” and says that his approach could easily prosper in Europe. Brazil have won all 7 of Tite’s games in charge and Marquinhos has become a regular alongside João Miranda in defence.
Tite and Marquinhos worked together at Corinthians a few years ago. Marquinhos told ESPN Brazil, “He is a very good person, a person who knows how to see the human side, besides the player who is there. He is a person who works with honesty.
“Tite is a special coach, he has a strong quality, a human side, he knows how to talk to you. Tite knows a lot about football. He knows how to manage it all. And he understands a lot about tactics and partnerships on the field.”
Brazil are 7 points clear at the top of the CONMEBOL table and almost certain to qualify for the 2018 World Cup now and Marquinhos admits that the credit is largely due to Tite, who has completely transformed the team’s fortunes.
“The credit is largely his. As they are also the players who are playing, there is always a division of merit. You win and lose as a team. But we have to know the importance of each. Tite is a coach of great quality. We trust him.”
