Marquinhos is Paris Saint-Germain’s best player – Paulo Cesar

Neymar may be tipped to one day win the Ballon d’Or, but it is another Brazil international that gets his countryman’s backing as PSG’s best

Marquinhos is Paris Saint-Germain‘s best player, according to Paulo Cesar, who feels that being a regular for the Brazilian national team will see people better appreciate what the defender brings to the pitch.

Cesar, who spent five years at Parc des Princes between 2002-2007, has watched as his old side have become Ligue 1‘s superpower following their takeover by Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) in 2011.

The club’s pulling power has seen them sign some of the world’s greatest talents in recent years, with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani all part of an attacking line that continues to plunder goals at an incredible rate in France‘s top tier.

For Cesar, however, it is defensive utility man Marquinhos who should be receiving the biggest plaudits, with his countryman rarely mentioned when it comes to detailing the club’s ongoing success.

“For me, Marquinhos is a great player. At the moment, he’s the best player in Paris,” the former right-back said during an Instagram Live broadcast. 

“He needs to cement his position in the national team – that’s how people will get to know him and appreciate him more.
