The last few days have been very good for all associated with Arsenal as they managed to beat Liverpool in the Community Shield on penalties and then announced the signing of defender Gabriel Magalhaes.
It is an exciting time to be an Arsenal supporter as, despite finishing in eighth place in the Premier League last season, there has been an upturn in fortunes since Mikel Arteta took over from Unai Emery as manager, as he has managed to win both the Community Shield and the FA Cup while being in charge for less than nine months at the Emirates Stadium.
This clearly has been a factor in bringing players like Gabriel to the club, and he is very excited to embark on his new journey in the Premier League as he posted on Instagram following Arsenal’s confirmation of his transfer.
His post was a video of him changing his Lille shirt for the Gunners’ home kit and it was accompanied with the caption: ‘Wearing and representing the Arsenal shirt is the privilege of a few. I thank my parents, my businessmen and everyone who helped me get here. Very happy and motivated to be able to play in such a traditional team of world football. A new beginning. A new story’
Supporters will surely love that he has called it a privilege to play for the club and hopefully the 22 year-old can put in some solid performances at the back to help Arsenal lift more silverware and improve upon their lowly league finish from last term.
Gunners fans, how excited are you to see Gabriel in action? Comment below with your views!
