Arsenal fans ecstatic as Gabriel Martinelli quotes Tony Adams in new contract message

Gabriel Martinelli posted a message on Instagram after he penned a fresh Arsenal deal on Friday – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have gone wild with excitement after he quoted club legend Tony Adams.

The Brazilian forward has signed a “long-term deal” with the Gunners (official website) and has been rewarded for a serious breakthrough.

Martinelli has already netted 10 goals in his first 26 senior matches this campaign, which makes him the club’s second highest goalscorer this season across all competitions behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The speed machine’s long-term future may lie in a central attacking role, but he’s shown he can also be a thereat cutting in from wide areas and being direct to goal.

He put up a post on his Instagram following his new deal and included a previous quote from ex-Arsenal captain and defender Adams: “Play for the name on the front of the shirt and they’ll remember the name on the back”.

A selection of Arsenal supporters on social media are adamant that their teenage rising star understands the culture of the club and are excited about his future moving forward.

The 19-year-old needs to overcome a knee injury before he’s back on the pitch for Mikel Arteta’s side, but there is certainly a spot for him to really cement in the starting XI and the 2020/2021 campaign could be another big one for him if he keeps improving.

Here are some Arsenal fans discussing Martinelli’s post:
