Arteta Hails ‘Fighter’ Martinelli
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has paid tribute to 18-year old star Gabriel Martinelli, the Brazilian has forced his way into the Gunners starting line-up in recent weeks.
He has 10 goals for the club this season after signing from Ituano last summer and is taking the league by storm.
“For me the biggest one [attribute] is his hunger, his attitude & his willingness. After that obviously he’s a player that is a threat on goal, he can finish, he can run in behind & he’s a fighter,” Arteta said.
“But the biggest attribute is his personality when he’s on that pitch. It doesn’t matter what type of game it is, he just wants to win & do his best every single day.”
Arsenal are currently undertaking a winter training camp in Dubai due to a fortnight break in the fixture schedule.
