Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli shows praise on “funny” Tottenham Hotspur star Richarlison

Arsenal winger Gabriel Martinelli and Tottenham Hotspur star Richarlison will be at the 2022 FIFA World Cup donning Brazil’s colours.

While they are rivals in club football, the two seem to share a very good relationship on the international stage. Speaking to Sky Sports, the Brazilian forward playing for the red side of north London was asked to give his views on Richy.

He said:

“Everyone knows that he’s a very good player. I was in the Olympic Games with him. He was very important for us to win it. Yeah, he’s a very good player. Everyone knows that and off the pitch, he’s a very good guy as well. So funny, always joking around, and everyone in the team loves him as well.”

Both Martinelli and Richarlison have had great seasons for their clubs so far. While the former is spearheading Arsenal’s Premier League title charge, Richy is helping us in England and Europe to realise the vision that manager Antonio Conte has for us.

He is a big reason behind Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and especially Dejan Kulusevski being on their toes knowing that their starting spots aren’t guaranteed. Well, for Kane, it perhaps is…

Nevertheless, Richarlison’s absence due to an injury in the 2-0 win against Everton cost us. It showed us that despite him joining us just this summer, we have become a bit reliant on him to produce the magic from the get-go or from the bench.

His return to first-team action was important in our brilliant comeback win against Leeds United. It’s good to see him back in action and hopefully, he goes on to have a great World Cup.

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

It is more or less given that manager Tite will pick him for first-team football given Richarlison’s appearances for the South American giants in September. Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal could be his competitor for a starting spot down the middle with Roberto Firmino of Liverpool shockingly left out of the team.
