Rock’n’roll Gunners’ ukelele and mandolin jams

Baptista_1 Arsenal might have had a terrible start to the season on the pitch but they are top of the table in the musical stakes. With accomplished mandolin and guitar player Gilberto Silva already at the club, the samba rhythm is beating well at the Emirates Stadium with the arrival of Julio Baptista.

Pele_1 ‘The Beast’ plays the cavaquinho – a Brazilian ukulele apparently – and is eager to get jamming with his new team-mate. He told The Sun: "Gilberto plays the mandolin, so I think I’ll end up jamming together with him. This used to happen with the Brazilians in Madrid. I’d pick up the cavaquinho then Roberto Carlos and Robinho would pitch up."
