Arsenal teenager Arturo Lupoli has piped best mate Giuseppe Rossi to the Carling Cup New Talent Award 2005/6.
Lupoli made four appearances for Arsenal in the Carling Cup
The 18-year-old striker was part of a six-man shortlist, but beat Steven Davis, Charles N'Zogbia, Jerome Thomas, Ben Watson and Rossi to the accolade.
The award allowed supporters the chance to vote for players that impressed in the Carling Cup competition.
Lupoli joined Arsenal from Parma in 2004 where he played with Rossi in the same youth team in the 1990s.
