Brazil legend Ronaldo Nazario has said that Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus is one of the best strikers in the world. He has also said that he will soon start scoring goals regularly for the club and national team.
However, he has just suffered a major injury during the World Cup. The Gunners striker will now have surgery in UK for his knee to keep him out for the majority of the World Cup.
RONALDO PRAISES THE QUALITY OF GABRIEL JESUS
Brazil legend Ronaldo Nazario has said that Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus is one of the best strikers in the world. He has also said that he will soon be starting scoring goals regularly. Ronaldo further said,
“Gabriel [Jesus] today is one of the best strikers in the world and much more mature than in 2018. The goals will come naturally and this concern should not cross his mind. All he has to do is get on the field and do what he knows how to do.”
Hence, it looks like the Brazil legend and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta have the same opinion about Gabriel Jesus. Mikel Arteta has also said that Gunners fans should not be worried about his lack of goals. Hence, this clearly indicates that former footballers and top managers rate him very highly. It is also clear that he is admired by his teammates and former teammates. His Manchester City teammate Jack Grealish and Gunners teammate Bukayo Saka have called him an unbelievable player.
ARSENAL AND BRAZIL HAVE SUFFERED A MAJOR SETBACK
Brazil national team have just announced that the Arsenal striker has injured his knee injury during their final group match against Cameroon. Hence, this injury will keep him out for the rest of the World Cup. A number of reports have also claimed that the injury will keep him out for 3 months. Hence, he will also miss out the second half of the season with Arsenal. Therefore, this has also blown up Mikel Arteta’s plans for the January transfer window.
This injury also means Eddie Nketiah is the only available fit striker on the team. Hence, it looks like the Gunners will have to risk half-fit Eddie Nketiah. A number of reports also claimed that Brazil traveled with half-fit Gabriel Jesus. However, national coach Tite has dismissed the baseless rumors. He has made it clear that the medical departments of the country and club did not see any injury problems before the World Cup. However, the positive thing for them is their star player Neymar is back from a sprained ankle injury.
Therefore, Arsenal and Brazil will both hope that they do not miss the impact of Gabriel Jesus for the rest of the campaigns. The Brazil striker will also try his best to recover from his major injury to help the Gunners win trophies this season. Mikel Arteta is also likely to explore short-term replacement options for Gabriel Jesus in the January transfer window.
