Michael was once considered to be one of the brightest prospects of Cyprus for the striker's position, having started his career in the youth system of Bolton Wanderers in England, reaching up to and including their Reserves. When he returned to Cyprus in 2010 to sign for giants Anorthosis Famagusta, he was already a regular for the Cyprus Youth National Teams.
Injuries and bad form of Anorthosis' strikers enabled Michael to make it to the first-team relatively quickly, making some really solid performances in his early days in the team.
After gradually loosing his place in the team, he was loaned-out to Enosis Neon Parekklisia in the Cypriot Second Division in January 2012 and he established himself as one of the most fearsome strikers in the whole league.
In the following Season, he was once again loaned-out, this time to First Division side, Olympiacos Nicosia, where he formed a deadly partnership with young Italian striker, Gaetano Monachello, who is currently playing for Atalanta in the Serie A.
Despite Marcos' impressive performances for Olympiacos, he failed to make it to the Anorthosis Famagusta first-team squad for the 2013-14 Season, and he was loaned-out to Second Division side, Nikos & Sokratis Erimis where he under-performed and, as a result, he was released from his Anorthosis contract at the end of the Season.
In the Summer of 2014, Michael was on trial with fellow Cypriot giants, Apollon Limassol, but some injury problems prevented him from signing for his hometown club, and he ended-up signing on a free-transfer for fellow Limassol club, Aris Limassol, which was playing in the Second Division.
After an uninspiring spell there, he was surprisingly back in the First Division for the 2015-16 Season, with Nea Salamina Famagusta. However, Marcos featured sporadically there, playing second fiddle to Bulgarian International striker, Dimitar Makriev, and he was released after just six months into the Season.
Despite his worsening reputation, the once promising attacker moved for the second time abroad signing for Romanian club, Petrolul Ploiești.
Marcos Michael is regarded as a tall, strong and powerful Center-Forward, who is extremely dangerous with the head and can hold the ball nicely with his back-to-goal.
