Brazil boss makes strange decision to drop Arsenal trio

Brazil boss Tite has decided to drop all of Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli from his squad for their upcoming friendly matches, whilst Arsenal’s rival Premier League stars remain in the squad.

The Gunners have been in top form since the new season begun, propelling themselves to the top of the PL table with a string of wins, but we did lose our 100% record last weekend away at Old Trafford.

Our players have now been handed the strange scenario of finding themselves overlooked by the Brazil boss, while the likes of Antony of United, Thiago Silva of Chelsea and Richarlison of Tottenham remain.

It is a very strange decision by the manager, although he does have a wealth of options at his disposal, but I would have thought that all three would be ahead of a number of their players in the pecking order for the World Cup, and with this being the final selection prior to the tournament in Qatar, I would have expected them to be included.

While I am certainly perplexed by the decision, the fact that our players will now have added rest in what promises to be one of the most hectic campaigns in history cannot be bad for our club overall.

The trio could have their confidence hit a little, but I struggle to belief that any of them would lose form because of it, and their snub could well add fire to their bellies for them to push to perform even better ahead of the World Cup.

Could Tite’s snub have been personal seeming as our players are the ones strangely dropped?

  1. I’m more worried about Partey than those 3. Partey could even miss the world cup by going for thses friendlies. If only their manager could think this way and leave him alone!!!
    As for our tio, at least Jesus will go to the world cup. I believe Tite is experimenting with some others in the group.

  2. Who knows maybe him n Edu got a little deal to protect them n not use them in the friendlies 😉 seems too odd otherwise

  3. I think he’s done it on purpose so they can get rest and he must love watching Arsenal at the moment so he don’t want them to come back injured for club so when World Cup comes on they can join up with him there

  4. No snub and not dropped. Arsenal asked they be “excused” from these friendly matches, no controversy, no problem, no story.
