Biography
Gelson Dany Batalha Martins

One of 2015/16's big surprises, Gelson is quickly becoming the latest example of young players progressing through the Sporting Academy all the way to the senior squad.

Brought in from Futebol Benfica in 2010, Gelson scored at least 30 goals every season during his youth career. In 2014/15, after making his debut for Sporting B (scoring 6 goals in 40 games), he was called up to the national under-20 squad for the World Cup in New Zealand, scoring twice.

Gelson has regularly featured in Jorge Jesus' squad, with his speed and technical quality fitting in well with Sporting's playing style.
