Gabriel Jesus posted on his Instagram story that he would “be back stronger” after injury forced him to miss the World Cup in Qatar. Jesus plays for both Arsenal and Brazil.
The Arsenal website posted on
on Tuesday that the former Manchester City player had “successful surgery” on his right knee and that he will now begin his rehabilitation program. the news came on the same day that it was announced.
It would be a terrible waste for the player, for his country, and for Arsenal to miss out on this opportunity right now, because all three are currently riding high.
Jesus has been a significant contributor to the success of Mikel Arteta’s team, which is currently positioned in first place in the Premier League table.
The performance of the 25-year-old on the domestic stage earned him a spot on Tite’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar. He started for his country in their 1-0 loss to Cameroon during the group stages of the tournament before suffering an injury.
Although Brazil will be able to overcome his absence thanks to the wealth of attacking talent that the free-scoring and free-dancing South American giants possess, the same cannot be said for Arsenal. The Gunners will struggle without him.
Jesus is at the center of everything that makes the team from north London tick as a unit, including their pace of play, their ability to create space for their flying young guns (Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka), and how well they work together.
However, those at the Emirates must now play the waiting game and keep their fingers crossed that their star player will return sooner rather than later.
The following was a post that Jesus made to his Instagram story on Tuesday evening: “God is wonderful. As he says in the picture of him on his hospital bed that can be found below, “I will be back stronger.”
WILL THE ARSENAL COMPANY PARTICIPATE IN THE MONTH OF JANUARY’S TRANSFER MARKET?
The fact that there are still a few weeks until the start of the new season of the Premier League football means that Arteta and his teammates have time to come to a decision that will benefit them in the long run. This is one of the few bright spots that have resulted from all of this.
Should Jesus be sidelined for an extended period of time, the club will almost certainly be forced to make a transfer during the January transfer window, which will open the month after this one.
The problem they face is that it is difficult to replace a player of Jesus’ ability given that he can be an 8/10 even when he is not scoring. In addition, any club whose door they knock on will know exactly why Arsenal are calling and will only inflate their price for their player if they sell him to Arsenal.
