Arsenal Defender Gabriel's Emotional Tribute To Chapecoense Is Truly Moving

Arsenal Defender Gabriel's Emotional Tribute To Chapecoense Is Truly Moving
By Mikey Traynor

The football world is still coming to terms with the awful tragedy that took place in the mountains of Medellin on Tuesday resulting in the loss of most of Brazilian club Chapecoense's players and staff.

In the wake of such terrible news, we've seen an outpouring of sympathy for the community, and Brazil as a whole, and clubs and players are paying tribute to the team, that were due to play in the Copa Sudamericana final last night, in different ways.

Some teams are playing with Chapecoense's badge on their jerseys, others are holding minutes silence/applause, and players like Edinson Cavani are paying their respects in their goal celebrations, but when Arsenal defender Gabriel took his turn, he spoke from the heart.

Gabriel worked with a number of players and staff members who lost their lives, and his words as he struggled to hold back the tears were a powerful and moving tribute.

He showed immense bravery to stand in front of a camera after playing a football match with those thoughts and emotions fresh in his mind.

He also spoke incredibly well, and has been resoundingly praise for his tribute from Arsenal fans and supporters of other clubs alike.
