Marquinhos raring to go

New signing Marquinhos is desperate to begin training with his Paris St Germain team-mates after overcoming a virus.

I picked up a virus when I returned to Europe. I had a bad stomach and a mouth infection.

I had tests with the medical staff and they told me it was just a virus which was in its last stage. It's nothing serious - certainly not hepatitis, as I have read.

The doctors instructed me to rest a bit because my immune system has been diminished.

Tomorrow I will return to hospital for more tests and I will start training on Monday with my new team-mates. I can't wait to play.
