Gilberto told Arsenal.com: “Denilson is a great character. Like many of the youngsters he’s not scared of playing in the team. It’s amazing to see such young players show such great performances, great character and great ability on the pitch.
“Denilson has adapted so quickly to the system of the team in the short time he’s been at the Club. It’s great to see.”
Gilberto admitted he is trying to help Denilson settle: “Edu helped me to settle and I am trying to help Denilson feel comfortable. He is enjoying his time at the club, he is enjoying living here and he is learning the language like I had to do when I first came here.
“I have tried to help him as much as I can to make him feel comfortable in the Club and he’s doing very well.”
