Updated: Nov 21, 2019
In an interview with the official fan website, the young Brazilian opened up on why his career has started so brightly at Arsenal.
Martinelli has stated in a recent article with Arsenal.com that his burgeoning career in professional football couldn't have been achieved without the help of his family.
"I guess the most important thing is that I’ve always known I would be a footballer. My family and I always believed I could do it. They boosted my confidence and have supported me, no matter what."
The young forward, who has scored 7 goals in 9 games, has certainly flourished in London after signing from Ituano during the summer and he attributes this success to being positive in his approach.
" That’s something my family taught me to do, to be positive and make the most of the opportunities you’re given. They’ve never left my side and I have to thank them because, without my family, none of this would have happened."
