ARSENAL fans have been discussing Gabriel Martinelli’s accent after footage emerged of him scolding team-mate Ben White.
Martinelli, 20, was giving a filmed interview for the Premier League in the latest episode of Uncut.
The Brazilian discussed some of the goals he has scored this season, including his chip against Leeds at Elland Road.
He also offered advice to youngsters hoping to be a forward like him one day – before he was rudely interrupted by White.
The Arsenal defender smashed a ball into the back of an empty net behind where Martinelli was being interviewed.
So he shouted “Ben!…I’m working.”
Arsenal fans were intrigued with how Martinelli sounded when he shouted the words.
One fan on Twitter asked: “Why does Gabi sound like an Italian gangster here?”
Another added: “Damn that’s so Joe Pesci.”
And a third said: “Such a likable guy.”

Martinelli is half Italian and possesses an Italian passport, but he has chosen to represent Brazil at international level.
He won his first two Brazil caps in March playing against Chile and Bolivia, getting into the side ahead of Gunners transfer target Gabriel Jesus.
The Manchester City star’s representatives are in talks with Arsenal over a move, with Jesus said to be keen on the project in place in north London.
Arsenal are believed to have submitted a £43million bid for the forward who could become their first summer signing.
