Márquez said, "Congratulations and I hope that this [championship] will also be compensated. We have to talk with [Mexican billionaire and León owner Carlos] Slim and see what projects could happen for the team, and above all, for the fans. We will be talking next year." After saying that he "considers himself a León fan, Márquez said that he will recognize the efforts of all 22 players."
