[Marcus has long promised to grace the professional ranks, having joined the youth academy of the Stade Bonal outfit at 15 on the advice of his learned father] Sochaux is quite far from everything, there’s not much media coverage, it’s a bit of a protective cocoon. It was my dad who told me to run away from the bling-bling!. […] No, no, papa was on his knees. I wanted to imitate someone else, he’s called OhMonDieuSialva. He’s a comedian on social media.

[Thuram is aware that he needs to improve in his new role] When you’re a centre-forward, you have to play more with your elbows and fight. It’s an aspect of my game in which I’m trying to make progress.

[Thuram feels perfectly at home in his current company, with every obstacle put in front of him having been cleared by a considerable stride] If I go into a stadium where people don’t like me, it makes me want to do more.

[Back when he was a starry-eyed youngster following his father to training at Barcelona, Thuram inherited a pair of boots from a rather special someone] I was carefree at the time, probably about 10, and Messi was 20. His boots were too small for me, so I gave them to a friend. He must have them!

They’re all good friends of mine [his fellow Francophones: Plea, Bensebaini, Doucoure and Ibrahima Traore] and we’re glad to have one another. I really missed them during these last weeks with no team training. Borussia has now become a home for me. I rate my time here so far based on the success of the team. It’s been good, but we can do even better still

Alassane is a bit older than me and has more experience. We’re always having a laugh, we’re both jokers, and we get along really well on the pitch. What’s great is that we have a very similar way of thinking when it comes to football
