Gabriel Martinelli & Mikel Arteta respond to Arsenal star’s bizarre sending off vs Wolves

Gabriel Martinelli & Mikel Arteta respond to Arsenal star’s bizarre sending off vs Wolves


Arsenal pair Gabriel Martinelli and Mikel Arteta have provided their respective post-match reactions to the former being handed his marching orders during the club’s meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday evening.

For those not aware, Brazilian wide-man Martinelli was the recipient of one of the more bizarre red cards of the Premier League campaign at Molineux.

This comes after the 20-year-old saw a pair of yellow cards brandished in his direction one after the other by Michael Oliver, owing to a pair of successive infringements in the space of no more than five seconds:

Boss Mikel Arteta appeared equally as perplexed as many of a Gunners persuasion on the back of the full-time whistle in the west Midlands, admitting that, in all of his time spent in football, he had not seen such a decision made by a referee:

“I’ve never seen something like it. The rules can say probably it’s possible but you [referee] have to be very, very willing to do that.”

Martinelli himself, meanwhile, has too admitted that it remains ‘difficult to accept’ Michael Oliver’s call, albeit whilst reiterating his delight with Arsenal’s performance, in a post across his official social media platforms:

Gabriel makes the difference

Martinelli’s dismissal aside, it of course proved an otherwise positive evening’s work for Arsenal at Molineux on Thursday night.

This comes with the capital giants having clinched all three points, owing to a stout defensive display, manned by the likes of Cedric Soares, Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes.

The latter proved the difference when it comes to the scoreline, too, prodding home the game’s only goal with 25 minutes on the clock to guide Arsenal clear of Manchester United into 5th in the Premier League table, just a point adrift of David Moyes’ West Ham:
