‘Martinelli Is Good At Everything’ Says Kieran Tierney
Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney heaped praise on Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Martinelli after the 18-year old scored again for the Gunners against Vitoria on Thursday.
It was Martinelli’s fifth goal in three starts for the club, scoring a glancing first half header to level the scores at 1-1.
Fellow summer arrival Kieran Tierney created the goal with a pinpoint cross and he has been impressed with the youngster.
“I love playing with Gabi, even in training as well – but I hate playing against him!” he told Arsenal.com. “He’s a great player.
“You can see how clinical he is in front of goal. He’s good at everything – there’s not a negative I can say about Gabi. He’s got the lot.”
Martinelli scored a brace against Nottingham Forest and Standard Liege and opened the scoring against Vitoria in the Europa League.
