Reason Why Arteta Drops Gabriel Martinelli In Arsenal's First-Team

Arsenal's manager Mikel Arteta says Gabriel Martinelli needs to show some patience in his bid to force his way back into Gunners first-team. Mikel Arteta added that he needed a long run with Martinelli, not just a short one.

The 19 year old Brazilian forward returned from an injury problem in December but the Arsenal's teenager has his first-team opportunity limited over past few months. Martinelli has managed three Premier League start in his campaign this season and scoring one goal. Martinelli scored 10 times in 26 games during the first season at Emirate Stadium but his opportunity in Arsenal's first-team has been locked out by presence of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Willian who are majorly used in forward position for the Gunners.

Arsenal's manager Mikel Arteta during his interview with Metro said "Martinelli has a lot to of development to do. He needs time, he is so willing and anxious that it can block his development. Sometimes he won't understand the decision I make but the reason I make those decisions is to help him develop into a football ace." In his interview, Arteta meant that Martinelli needs to put away his ego and anger for the good of Gunners.

Martinelli is good promising player who stand to be an armor in Arsenal's squad at this critical time where both Arsenal's forward Aubameyang and Lacazette are nursing serious injuries.
