Arsenal Legend Reveals Martinelli Advice
Arsenal legend Ian Wright has revealed that he has had conversations with the Gunners 18- year old forward Gabriel Martinelli.
The Brazilian has 9 goals in his debut season for the Gunners and Wright, Arsenal’s second highest goalscorer of all-time, revealed Martinelli reached out to him on social media.
“I have been in contact with him over text and you can see he is so hungry to do well," Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“He got in touch on Instagram and we went from there. I get a lot of sliding! I have a broad spectrum of experience I can share.
“I just text him saying 'well done', 'good movement' and things like that. 'Keep getting yourself in the box' and 'keep making near post runs.'
“When you see him you can see that determination and hunger," he added. "You almost have to rein him in a little bit.
"We are very lucky to have him and if he carries on improving then it will be very difficult to keep him. If Arsenal keep creating chances, the way he moves in the box, he is going to score goals."
