On loan from Corinthians to Sport, striker Marquinhos took the worst in a split, in the match last Thursday (25), during the first half of the match between Leão and Athletico-PR, in the Arena da Baixada. Marquinhos was replaced immediately and sent to Marcelino Champagnat Hospital, in Curitiba.
From there, the player reported his drama by posting two photos on Stories do Instagram. At first, he appears wearing an orthopedic immobilizing boot. Then he showed the ankle of his left foot, which was quite swollen, and wrote, “I can’t even believe this is happening to me. Right now.”
With the end of the Brazilian Championship and the loan, Marquinhos will present himself at Corinthians in the next few days. The striker scored six goals in 47 appearances for Sport. Until the publication of this article, the Pernambuco club had not yet informed the diagnosis about the possible injury of the 24-year-old striker.
