Gabriel Magalhaes discusses what it is like working with Arteta

Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes has spoken about life as a player under Mikel Arteta as he becomes more relevant to the Gunners.

The Brazilian is now one of the first-choice players at the club and has started almost every game for them this season, having formed a solid partnership with William Saliba.

Mikel Arteta signed him from Lille in 2020 and the defender has enjoyed working with the Spanish boss since he moved to London.

The gaffer is one of the finest man-managers around and his players enjoy working with him and giving him their best.

Gabriel was speaking about Arteta and told Arsenal Media:

“We’ve got a very good relationship. 

“We’re always chatting. He’s a manager who is very close with his players and he’s very influential.

“He’s helped me a lot since I arrived here. He’s a great person and really looks after every person in the team – it’s like a family. He makes us happy and that gives us a real desire to win.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Gabriel’s only Arsenal manager has been Arteta, as the Spaniard has been in charge since he moved to London and he is one reliable member of the Gunners squad.

Fans have enjoyed watching him play and he will likely keep improving as long as the Gunners keep faith with Arteta.

  1. I think we won’t get RB anytime soon as White has cemented his spot there. Then there’s Tomi who’s very versatile.

    The links for free agents Skriniar (right footed) and NDicka (left footed) makes somewhat sense although arrival of these would mean Holding being sold.

  2. Gabriel Magalhaes is a top defender that has hold his own nicely in my opinion.
    He has worked well with Ben white and since White has gone out right he continues on the same path with Saliba.

    He has been the subject for some sticks lately from fans and pundits alike

    Gabriel Magalhaes is a marquee left sided defender with airial dominance and aggression which is hard to find, just ask the old lady.

    Gabriel Magalhaes, Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Barbosa were the three biggest surprisingly missing players from the Brazilian nationals.
    Magalhaes is the youngest of the lot which argues well for a very bright future ahead

  3. I am a firm supporter of GABRIEL as a major plus factor in our sound defence. He is a warrior with great power and speed. And excellent in the air, something we have not , until recent times, been able to say about our centre backs, many of whom have been simply dreadful, going back many years and several managers.

    I also find it really surprising that a very few Gooners, including one older fan whose views I generally MUCH RESPECT, does not agree at all about him.

    Shows that, about CB’s in particular, hardly any can please ALL fans.

  4. Ndicka is a perfect player to come in either cheaply in Jan or wait until the summer for free with the pre contract apparently signed. Left footed CB who has been super in Germany and also won the Europa League last year. No big price tag and will come straight in and help, maybe can play a few positions with no massive ego to come in to learn. Teilimans is in that bracket also of cheap buys to help, covers midfield spots and wants to come, experienced in the league.

    Gabriel will pick up his game even more with the competition incoming.
    White & Tomi have RB sorted as do Teirney & Zink for LB so come summer.

    With Mudrik a big possibility along with a strong midfielder to help Partey as he’s injured would be decent until we get the right CDM in the summer.

    Ramsdale & Turner
    Saliba & Holding
    Gabriel & Ndicka
    Zink & Teirney
    Partey & ????
    Xhaka & Teilimans
    Øde & Vieria
    Martinelli & Mudrik
    Jesus & Nketiah
    Saka & Smithrowe

    Sign Mudrik now, Teilimans either cheap in Jan or free, Ndicka in the summer for free. All that would be left to buy is Thomas competition & cover heading back into Champions league possibly.

  5. Gabriel is an easy player to like, like so many others on the team. His aggression is deadly though it will lead to the odd rash foul, though that is to be expected and it would be wrong to want him to change in any way. His partnership with Saliba strongly compliments one another
