Bellerin Hails Martinelli Attitude
Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has praised his young teammate Gabriel Martinelli for his professionalism and his attitude.
The 18-year old Brazilian has scored in consecutive Premier League games and has 10 goals for the Gunners this season.
But Bellerin, who captained the Gunners at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, says it is the player’s mentality that sets him apart.
“A lot of people talk about his talent, but what people don’t see is that Gabi is a professional,” Bellerin told the Evening Standard.
“He turns up early every day. He does all the stuff anyone asks him to do. He leaves everything on the pitch. The goals are just a plus.
“He helps us in every single way and the thing that everyone needs to praise him for is his attitude. That is what makes him [such] a player.
“He is obviously really young, so many things can happen, but if he keeps his head where it is right now, he is going to go really far.”
