Arsenal fans react to club’s Gabriel Martinelli update

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that the club confirmed on their official website concerning Gabriel Martinelli.

Gunners supporters would have been forgiven for dreading an update on Martinelli. The forward was clearly devastated after sustaining an injury in the warm-up ahead of the FA Cup tie with Newcastle at the weekend.

Given that he spent most of 2020 on the sidelines, there were obviously concerns that he may be set for another lengthy spell out of the team.

Martinelli’s return to the fold provided some much-needed positivity to the side. And it was arguably one of the catalysts that inspired Mikel Arteta’s side’s recent turnaround in form.

The good news is that Arsenal will only be without Martinelli for a very short period. The club confirmed on their official website that he will return to training in the coming days.

Obviously, that means Thursday’s clash with Crystal Palace will likely come too soon for the youngster. But the supporters would have clearly taken him missing just one or two games as Saturday’s news filtered through.

‘Best news ever’

Understandably, the fans have been left delighted by the news. Martinelli – who earns Β£90,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – has been outstanding throughout his time in North London.

Some have expressed a hope that Arteta will not rush him back. But the overall feeling is one of relief and excitement that Martinelli may not be out for long.

Here is how some of the fans have reacted to the news…
