Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli has taken to Twitter with a message following his long-awaited return to training for the Gunners.
The 19-year-old suffered a knee injury during training in June and had been on the sidelines since then.
However, Martinelli told the club media team earlier this week that he was recovering well and was looking ahead to a return to training.
“I’m feeling very well, I’m regaining confidence and I can feel my knee is better,” the Brazilian told Arsenal Player.
“After an injury like this you are kind of scared to force the knee again but the past couple of weeks it has been fine and soon I can start training with the ball.”
And on Friday, Arsenal’s social media team shared images of Martinelli in training, confirming that he was doing on-the-ball drills.
The young prodigy subsequently shared pictures of himself on his personal account and wrote “working hard, going to come back stronger”.

Martinelli, who joined Arsenal from Brazilian side Ituano FC last summer for £6million, has been a sensation in North London since his arrival.
With 10 goals and four assists from 26 Gunners appearances last term, he became the first teenage goalscorer to reach double figures for Arsenal since Nicolas Anelka in 1998-99.
Martinelli put pen to paper on a new long-term deal in the summer – the Evening Standard claims he signed a four-year contract with the option of a fifth, also getting a pay rise.
