Márquez: “We will fight next year”

Márquez assures in the great annual event of the newspaper 'Marca' that next season he will seek his ninth champion crown.


If on Friday it was Joan Mir , just before a weekend that he will never forget, who started the Marca Sport Weekend, on Sunday it was Marc Márquez , who participated in the last day of the most relevant sporting event of the year.

Resigned by his injury and by not having been able to compete in the 2020 championship, the six-time MotoGP world champion (and winner of eight titles in total, including 125 and Moto2 titles) started the fight for the new crown next year: «This one too I started it with the idea of getting the ninth, but we are recovering and next year we will fight to achieve it. The next World Cup promises a show.

MARCA Sport Weekend arrived at the last day of a weekend that has had almost a hundred stars of the world sport. In addition to Márquez, Sunday's session featured great protagonists, such as Aleksander Ceferin , UEFA president, who did not hesitate to define the idea of the Super League as “a dream of two or three leaders to whom it gives equal everything that is not themselves.

Atlético de Madrid forward Luis Suárez also went through the weekend's event, and during his interview he stated that “with players, personality and quality, we only need to hit the key moments.” For this reason, the Uruguayan was ambitious with the goals of the rojiblanco team: “If we believe it, why not dream of winning LaLiga”, he asked himself.

Another Uruguayan, Diego Forlán , did not hesitate to place Atlético as a candidate for everything: “With this squad you can win the League or the Champions League.”

The soccer player poster expanded its payroll with talks by Xabi Prieto , Pablo Hernández, Alberto Cifuentes and Gio Simeone . There were also two beloved rivals, Fabio Capello and Roberto Donadoni , who recalled the best moments of the great Milan of the 80s and early 90s.

Emotional was the discussion with tennis player Roberto Bautista , who recalled the victory in the Davis Cup last year, where he gave the first point to Spain after the death of his father the day before: «When my teammates left my hole in the anthem, I decided to go back to Madrid », he recalled.

Speaking of tennis … or not, the chess champion Magnus Carlsen had a nod to that sport when comparing himself with other athletes: «I am not an artist, as Federer is, I am more of a monster like Nadal, powerful and relentless”.

The Olympic Games had two spaces. On the one hand, the windsurfer Blanca Manchón and the surfer Ariane Ochoa and, on the other, the one composed by the Paralympic athletes Ricardo Ten, Susana Rodríguez and Álex Sánchez Palomero .

With the support of Huawei, LaLiga, Mercedes-Benz Vans and Santander, the Marca Sport Weekend is being to sport what Primavera Sound is to music, a festival of the faithful with a poster where it is difficult to find its head. Next year they promise to return.
