According to Aaron Ramsdale, Gabriel Magalhaes, a Brazilian defender, and he had communication issues last season. Before the transfer window closed, the Gunners acquired the England goaltender in the summer.
Gabriel was one of the first players to sign for the Gunners under Mikel Arteta, and he had been playing at the Emirates since the previous season.
Ramsdale was brought in as a long-term successor for Bernd Leno as Arsenal continued to add young players to their roster. To work well together, goalies and their defenders frequently need to be able to communicate on the field. Ramsdale is aware of its significance, but Gabriel’s communication skills presented a challenge.
He told the Kelly and Wrighty Show:
“It’s come very natural for me throughout my career. “But when we first came in, especially last year, and me, Kieran, Big Gab, Ben and Tomi were training day in, day out together it just became a natural bond.
“Even though Gabi’s English is improving, last year it was a bit difficult, it probably helped him for us to show our emotions for him to understand what we’re trying to say, rather than just speak to him.”
It’s wonderful to read that Gabriel was assisted in understanding by Arsenal players using gestures and other techniques. This most likely helped them do better throughout the previous campaign.
This season has started off well for them, and Gabriel appears to have improved. If William Saliba, a recent arrival, doesn’t speak English well enough, they may have used the same strategy on him.
