It’s fair to say that since his arrival from Villarreal in January, Gabriel has become something of a favourite among Arsenal fans.
He might not speak much English but he plays with the kind of fight and desire supporters love to see, and when he does speak (albeit in Portuguese) he says the right things – as evidenced here.
And in an interview with the official site, he says he wants to leave a legacy at Arsenal for his son, and all our sons, in helping the club win trophies.
“I will have my name remembered here for my son and your sons to see that we won the Champions League, the Premier League, the best competitions, because Arsenal are capable of doing it,” he rather awesomely said.
“On the first day I arrived here I felt something special.In reality, I think I always wanted to achieve the most important goals in the world and in the biggest competitions.
“When I got here, I saw that Arsenal have the ability to do it. We have great players to win the biggest competitions.
“I’m sure that me, my team-mates and everyone that works here will make history.”
It remains to be seen if that happens, but you don’t doubt this guy will do his absolute best.
The interview linked above is well worth a watch.
