Martinelli Impressed By Arteta’s ‘Eye For Detail’
Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli has paid tribute to coach Mikel Arteta, especially his eye for tactical detail.
Martinelli joined the club from Ituano last summer when Unai Emery was the Gunners manager, with Mikel Arteta taking over the reins in December.
In a recent interview with FourFourTwo, Martinelli said that Arteta’s attention to detail has come to define his managerial style.
“He’s been brilliant," Martinelli says. "He pays a lot of attention to moves and keeps pushing me to improve my game; not only in attack but defence, too. The boss is very wise tactically and incredibly helpful.
“He’s not an angry guy at all, but likes showing you exactly what to do on the pitch: 'If the ball goes that way, don’t stay here, go there and turn your body that specific way. He has a keen eye for detail."
