Brazil legend Ronaldo has called Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus as one of the best strikers in the world. Hence, many people will now expect goals from the star striker.
Brazil fans will also hope that his goals can help the team win the World Cup this year. However, the Gunners will hope that he can return to the club without any major injury.
BRAZIL LEGEND RONALDO HAS PRAISED GABRIEL JESUS
It looks like Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus is winning praises this season. Hence, Brazil legend Ronaldo has also praised him for his impact in the world. He has also called him one of the best strikers in the world. Ronaldo further said,
“Gabriel today is one of the best strikers in the world and much more mature than in 2018. The goal will come out naturally and this concern should not cross your mind. All he has to do is get on the field and do what he knows.
These comments come as a big boost for the Arsenal star striker. It will also help him put end to his scoring drought for his club and the national team. A number of fans have criticized the Gunners striker for not scoring enough goals. However, one must remember that he has contributed with assists and link-up plays in the goal. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has also praised his qualities during Jesus’s time at Manchester City. His current manager Mikel Arteta has also supported him.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE BRAZIL STRIKER FOR ARSENAL
Despite his lack of goals, Arsenal fans have always supported him. This is because Gabriel Jesus does his job of creating big chances for the team. The Brazilian striker has failed to score in the last six games before the break for the World Cup. Hence, after the World Cup, he will be under the pressure to score goals for his new club. The Gunners fans expect Jesus to lead them to the Champions League. However, Mikel Arteta hopes that pressure does not take a toll on him.
Arsenal’s manager further said,
“He’s getting the situations, he’s getting the chances, he’s contributing to the team an awful lot, he’s helping to win matches, the way he competes for every ball in every single action is incredible. “It will come, he needs to be patient, he’s been through that in the past and he needs to learn those lessons and don’t stop doing those other things that he’s doing so well, because that’s going to maintain the level of him and the team.”
The statement from the Arsenal manager Arteta actually makes sense. This is because the wingers Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli are scoring goals and creating trouble for the opposition. The current backup striker Eddie Nketiah is also thriving in the competition for a starting place in the Premier League.
