Ronaldinho’s message to Arteta on how to manage club youngster

Ronaldinho previously revealed to Mikel Arteta that he had his own Ronaldo Nazario in the form of Gabriel Martinelli.

Martinelli joined the Unai Emery revolution in the summer of 2019, with his £6 million deal flying under the radar considering Arsenal’s club-record £72 million transfer for Ivorian winger Nicolas Pepe in the same window.

Martinelli injury crisis

However, the teenager made an immediate impact, scoring 10 goals in just 26 appearances across all competitions in his first season – before being sidelined for five months due to a serious knee injury.

Since then, the Brazilian has battled to reclaim his place in the first squad, appearing in only two league games this season, both of which were in August.

Given Arteta’s side’s recent struggles in the final third, when they have failed to score in five of their 12 Premier League games this season, this could be the ideal time to reintegrate the gifted attacker.

Ronaldinho praises Martinelli

Martinelli had previously been praised by former Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho, and considering Arsenal’s current goal-scoring troubles, he may be granted a start against Newcastle United this weekend.

In January 2020, Ronaldinho told the Mirror, “We as Brazilians are tremendously thrilled about him and his future.” “Having skill is one thing, but having confidence at the age of 18 is quite another.”

Compared to Ronaldo

“He reminds me a little bit of Ronaldo.” He scored 30 goals in his debut season in Europe, and people wondered, “Who is this 18-year-old Brazilian kid?”

“He wanted the ball, he’d run at players, and he had no fear, no matter who he was playing against or what side he was on – and Martinelli has a similar approach.”

“All he wants to do is have the ball and score goals.”
The Arsenal striker still has a long way to gobefore reaching such heights, but if Arteta and the Gunners can get the best out of him,they’ll be rewarded handsomely.

Martinelli has already displayed his talent since he arrived from Brazil in 2019
