It looks like Arsenal youngster has out his injury nightmare behind him as he to revealed all he went through during the spell on the treatment table.
Gabriel Martinelli was one of the bright talents at the Emirates stadium. The 19 years was in good form for the Gunners before he suffered the knee injury in training last year March. 

Martinelli missed the second half of the season following the knee injury, as he had to travel to Brazil after the surgery. 

The youngster revealed how he broke down in tears after the doctor told him he required surgery. 

During an interview with Daily Mail, he said he was trying to receive the ball during training session when he felt the pain on his knee. 

“I was about to receive the ball and felt a little pain on my knee,” he told the Daily Mail. "Not enough for me to stop practising, but, while we were on the finishing session, I told them that I was in pain. They told me to rest and, if I felt the pain the next day, to let them know.

“When I woke up, I felt it but I was able to walk. I thought it was nothing at first, but it was a pain I'd never felt before. I went to the club for the examinations and they said it was not good and I would need surgery. It broke me. I cried a lot.”

Recall that the 19 years old  joined the Gunners from Ituano in 2019. He scored 10 goals in 30 appearances for Arsenal which included a solo run against Chelsea.

But the good news is that the Brazilian is back and steadily getting back to his best. Although the manager, Mikel Arteta isn't ready to rush him back into the team. 

He revealed that Mikel Arteta was a great support to him during his rehabilitation, stating that the manager would call to inquire about his progress. 

Martinelli said: “Mikel talked to me during my recovery,” he said. “Always calling me to know how I was, even when I returned to Brazil for a time in August. When the club needed me, he talked to me again, asking if I was feeling ready to play."

He revealed he still feel some pain in the knee and he's ready to play 90 minutes at the moment.

He said “I said yes. I still feel a bit of pain in the knee, but the doctors say that it is fine. I've not been able to play 90 minutes yet, but it also needs time. My focus is on getting better and helping Arsenal.”

Arsenal will kick off their FA Cup defense against Newcastle at the Emirates stadium on Saturday. The game is expected to kick off at 6:30pm GMT.
