‘Our own CR7’, ‘Best Player’, some Arsenal fans react to club’s latest announcement

A selection of Arsenal fans have expressed their delight after Gabriel Martinelli was handed with the club’s Player of the Month accolade for the January.

The youngster joined the club from fourth-tier Brazilian side Ituano over the summer and he has since enjoyed a fantastic debut season where he has contributed 10 goals and two assists from just 23 appearances.

In the recent month, the Brazilian was impressive as he scored against both Chelsea and Sheffield United while he provided an assist in the FA Cup fourth round win at Bournemouth.

As a result, he was chosen by the fans as the Player of the Month and he gained 49 percent of the votes with former captain Granit Xhaka (31%) and Bukayo Saka coming in second and third respectively.

The Gunners posted the same on their official Twitter account and a number of the club’s supporters have heaped praise on the promising young attacker.

Twitter Reactions:

Martinelli has yet to develop into the perfect wide player and he has been average with his distribution in the Premier League with less than 70 percent of his passes finding his teammates.

Still, he has managed to overcome that concern with his tireless workrate and high pressing while he has been a good positional sense with the knack of finding the net.
