“I believe it was very vital for me, though I got a ‘no’. But it surely was very vital to know the way football works [in England], how things are. So once I got here permanently to Arsenal, I believe I used to be a bit of more used to it. I knew how things were here and I knew a bit of in regards to the culture too. 

“Since I used to be 13 I had this project with Manchester United, so in my head I used to be a bit like, ‘hey, I’m going to Manchester, regardless, once I turn 18’. Then while you reach the age, within the yr you’re 17, the guy says, ‘hey, we don’t want this anymore’. I said, ‘hey, what am I going to do now?’”

Martinelli then had a spell with Barcelona of their La Masia academy before moving permanently to Arsenal. The winger has enjoyed a superb season thus far, together with his five goals helping the north Londoners sit top of the Premier League.
