[PSG defender Marquinhos admitted his side found it difficult against their opponents but feels they improved in the second half] It’s not easy to beat Nantes. They play well together as a team. They started the season well. I think we tried to play forward with speed, we lost the ball a lot too. I think in the second half we managed better, we controlled the game, we tried to play forward and we kept the ball

[PSG defender Marquinhos signs new contract until 2024] Paris and PSG have every argument for me to stay here and extend my contract. It’s an ambitious club that still wants to do great things, making football and club history. Then there’s the city side, the family side. My family is really very, very good here. I really feel at home here, I’ve got everything I need right here, and so that’s why the choice is quick. This is the seventh season. Six-and-a-half years since I signed, I look back and see how much PSG and I have accomplished. We’ve done great things. I think it’s really a very special club. We just have to keep living this beautiful story together

[Set to host Dortmund in Paris next month, Marquinhos has called on his side to seize the initiative in the second leg] I think we still had possession of the ball in the first half but we were not very intense and active in our game. We missed a lot of balls.
They tried to counter the mistakes we made and that’s where they hurt. Wwe conceded two goals on small details that made the difference with a striker [Haaland] who really has a sense of goal; maybe he is not too much in the match but the ball arrives and he puts it in. But still we managed to score a goal, it’s important for the return match. By the return match we will work well for all the players are in top form and we can make a very big match. It will take a mentality of winners. They have the score and we have to make a good victory at home, be aggressive, solid behind because we know that it is important not to take a goal at home.
These are the things that are clear: more intensity, more aggressiveness in our counter-pressing because it was lacking today. It’s the little details that make the difference and it is certain that we will do better because otherwise we will not succeed

[Marquinhos feels PSG must work hard to improve their defensive performances after leaking seven goals in their past two Ligue 1 games] On the one hand we are really very strong offensively, but on the other we concede a lot of goals. As defenders we really have to think about what we can do best. In this match it was mainly on set-pieces. We really have to work better collectively

[Marquinhos wants PSG clash with Borussia Dortmund postponed] That would be a shame. If it is to be played behind closed doors, I think the best thing would be to cancel because we want our supporters and they will want theirs too. I hope it doesn’t happen. If this decision is made, I think we will ask to cancel the match to play with our supporters

[Marquinhos says Neymar planned mocking of Haaland after PSG-Dortmund tie in advance] He likes that. Neymar is not just a football player, he is not afraid and always responds to provocations. After his goal, I asked him if he had changed his mind. He warned me, I told him to wait until the end of the match, but he told me to leave it and not to stop it
