Video: Arteta talks up Martinelli’s passion but calls for patience

Mikel Arteta has hailed Gabriel Martinelliβ€˜s presence in the squad, and attitude to training, but urges for β€˜patience’ on his rise.

The Brazilian made a huge statement in his debut season with the club, despite joining from the lowly fourth tier in Brazil.

Martinelli unfortunately suffered a long-term injury in June, and has been absent with a knee injury since, but it is hoped that he will be able to feature in the Premier League 2 at some point in December.

Could Martinelli play a key role in the remainder of our season?
