A little about the topic
The Italy international impressed how Paris Saint-Germain beat Man City 2-0 in the Champions League at the end of September, causing Pep Guardiola to declare he was in love with the midfielder, adding that he was exceptional. Even under pressure, he manages to find those passes that allow the midfield to be free. Marco Verratti proudly drew such compliments from the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss.
What did Marco Verratti say?
Marco Verratti said that these are definitely words that make him happy. Pep is a man who understands football, which is good for football and one of those who give them pleasure with football. So yes, Marco is happy. Pep is not the only high-profile figure to show his appreciation to Marco recently, as his new teammate Messi described him as a phenomenon in August, as he admitted that Barcelona wants to bring him to Camp Nou.
Despite Barça’s desire to sign him and Pep’s adulation, the 28-year-old has no interest in exchanging Paris Saint-Germain for another team. Instead, he wants to spend the rest of his career at the club he joined from Pescara nine years ago. When asked if he has any plans for life after football, Marco Verratti said he had little time left. Marco knows he will always stay here.
The Italy international added that he had the opportunity to play with and against great champions in great matches, which is what Marco wanted above all else. Verratti fell in love with this club and therefore always tries to give the maximum, to return the confidence that he was given.
According to Marco Verratti, he was a little boy who came from a small Italian provincial town and here he had everything. His children were born here! When you are a little over 18, these are your best years. And Marco lived here. That was incredible. Marco became a man and found love. So everything that he experienced here will leave him with incredible memories.
