‘I’m worrying for Arsenal’ Rio Ferdinand fears Jesus injury could affect Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus was injured at the World Cup and now faces being out for around three months, a huge blow to Arsenal as they bid to keep winning matches.

The Gunners are five points clear at the top of the Premier League table before the World Cup and have been working hard to ensure they can continue winning when league action resumes later this month.

Mikel Arteta’s side did admirably well partly because Jesus was in superb form and the attacker will be missed when they step on the pitch for their next Premier League game.

Rio Ferdinand is worried they might be unable to cope without him.

‘I’m worrying for Arsenal after we go back!’ The BBC World Cup pundit said on his FIVE YouTube show

‘I’m just saying. Just because of Jesus, that’s all I’m worried about.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus was our key attacker and his presence on the field made things happen for us even when he did not score.

We will miss him, but football is a team sport, and other members of our squad have also been doing well.

Now is the time for them to step up and show why they deserve to continue playing for the team.

  1. We’ve been generally solid and extremely consistent all season, so I hope we’ll be able to continue in that fashion. However, I do agree with ferdinand – even though I think we’ll keep playing well, can see us struggling to keep getting over the line with victories, although of course I hope I’m wrong.

  2. Ferdinand is in no way an Arsenal supporter He supports Man Utd, the team he played for for years. As such , to claim ” he is worried about Arsenal and about how we cope without Jesus” is yet another lie.

    Why do so many people say things that are plainly not true!
    If, say Keown, worried about us without Jesus, we would believe him of course, but not Ferdinand.
    Which Gooner can HONESTLY claim to be “worried” that MAN UTD MAY FINISH OUTSIDE THE TOP FOUR!? Me neither , so QED!

    1. Those were my thoughts on the matter!
      I in no way believe he is “worried” about Arsenal whether missing Jesus or additions in January.

      He should perhaps “worry” about his Utd squad who may very well miss out on the top 4. I would not be surprised to see Newcastle pip them and finish in the top 4.

    2. Ferdinand will not lose a minute sleep because of the injury to Jesus.

      Think he’s genuinely a worried man, but his worries or elsewhere.

      1. These comments by Ferdinand are being interpreted far too literally.
        He is using the word in a rhetorical manner.

  3. He could be worried in the sense that it’s gut-wrenching for him to watch City romping home each season and would love to see some team other than Liv putting them down in a similar manner. He may honestly be rooting for us this season
