Ljungberg Praises ‘Fearless’ Martinelli
Arsenal’s interim manager Freddie Ljungberg was full of praise for Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli, whom he described as ‘fearless.’
Martinelli eanred his first ever Premier League start in Monday night’s 3-1 win away at West Ham, setting the Gunners on the road to victory by scoring the equaliser.
“Gabi is a fantastic player,” Ljungberg said. “He’s still very young but he has that energy about him and he goes and he goes. He has no fear and he just keeps on going.
“So it’s a pleasure to see him there on that pitch, and for him to get the success that he did today, it gives you a smile to your face.”
Martinelli became the youngest player ever to score on his Arsenal debut, starting on the left-hand side of an attacking three.
