A Saint cast in bronze

The number 12 is at Palmeiras eternally linked with Marcos, the world-class keeper who retired from the Club in 2012. Last Saturday, the 12 December, at 12 o’clock, a crowd gathered at the Allianz Parque as a bust was unveiled in his honour. “São Marcos”, today 42, defended Palmeiras for 20 years and acquired the respect and admiration from palmeirenses and non-palmeirenses alike.

Marcos is the fifth player to be awarded a bust by the Club: Oberdan Cattani, Ademir da Guia, Junqueira and Waldemar Fiúme are the previously graced.
