“Gabriel, who is the centre-back, excellent piece of business. Martinelli, they have taken a real flyer there. That was a player that never got near Brazil’s first division when they bought him. He’s now on the verge of the Brazil squad. That’s a fantastic piece of business.
“They have just taken another flyer with Marquinhos, a teenager who they have brought over, he won’t be ready yet. But it’s mixed. Those deals with the veterans, I think they soiled the record a little.”
