Emiliano Martinez has posted a picture on Twitter of him playing football with his brother, aged just six years old and claims he still enjoys playing football as much as he did then.
The reserve goalkeeper has been at the club for more than five years after signing his first professional contract in 2011 and has been an understudy for his entire Arsenal career.

Martinez has made just a handful of Arsenal appearances – 10 in total, including four in the Premier League – but insists he still enjoys training with the club.
The 24-year-old graduated from the club academy but has failed to break into the first team and has been sent out on loan to four clubs.
He struggled at Oxford, making just one league appearance but made progression in 2014 when he represented Sheffield Wednesday in 15 first team starts.
Martinez then spent two months on loan to Rotherham before joining Wolves in 2015 but has since returned to Arsenal and trains regularly with the club.
The Argentine made his Arsenal league debut as a surprise substitute during their 2-1 defeat against Manchester United as Wojciech Szczesny was forced off with an injury.
He played the full 90 minutes in the three Premier League games after that.
Prior to that he had been involved in two high-scoring matches during the 2013-13 season, including a 7-5 thriller against Reading and a 6-1 victory against Coventry in the Capital One Cup.
