A few people might know that I have certain physical problems and limitations related to the surgery that I had before; they wouldn't let me play as much as I'd love to. I would like to say thank you to everyone who gave me this chance four years ago - to be a Ukrainian and play for the national team. I am grateful to President of Ukrainian Association of Football Andriy Pavelko and ex-manager Andriy Shevchenko for their support and trust. I am thankful for all of my partners in the team; you guys became a real football family for me, my friends on and beyond the pitch, and you will remain forever. And, of course, I am grateful for all supporters of the national team of Ukraine", Marlos said.
